Event Description

Join wine school founder Jimmy Smith online as he explores one of the least-known parts of France, the south-west.

Jimmy has hand-picked six world-class wines to showcase the least populated part of France which stretches from Bordeaux to the Pyrenees. Two mature and wonderful wines, Madiran and Cahors, are to be enjoyed to show off the exceptional ageing capability of the Tannat and Malbec grape varieites respectively. Also included is a gorgeous fresh Gaillac, and spicy and peppery Marcillac, a complex and layered Buzet and and rounded and quite lovely Irouleguy.

Tasting Date: Friday 12th March 2021 at 7:00pm (the tasting will last approximately 1.5 - 2 hours)

TASTING FEE STRUCTURE:

For this special two-hour tasting, an exclusive tasting kit is included in the listed price which includes a 75ml tasting sample of each wine, as well as tasting mat, tasting note paper and pen. Note: Tasting kits will be despatched to attendees within the week leading up to the tasting. Approximately two weeks prior to the event, we will confirm postal addresses for all kit deliveries.

DON'T WANT TO RECEIVE A TASTING KIT? We understand that not everyone will want to receive the wine samples, and would rather just register to participate in the online evening without the wines. That is absolutely fine! The fee to just register for this evening without receiving a tasting kit is £10. Just enter the promotional code: 75REGONLY when checking out to ensure you just pay the registration cost.

  • 75ml tasting sample of each wine (6 in total) contained in a sterilised glass bottle and preserved with an inert gas (designed specifically for wine preservation)
  • Tasting mat
