A View of St Emilion, A Fine Wine Tutored Tasting, 31st May 2012

A View of St Emilion, A Fine Wine Tutored Tasting, 31st May 2012
The evocative name of St Emilion conjures up warm, plummy, earthy yet elegant wines; for those of you have been there it will also call to mind a pretty hilltop town complete with gently humming cafés and surrounded by verdant vines. Enjoy the chance to experience the range of styles which St Emilion has to offer, with expert guide Martin Hudson MW at your side.

He will contrast the wines from the steep limestone slopes with those from the plain and from the small, complex gravel bed on the border with neighbour Pomerol. You will learn how the soil affects the blend of grape varieties in each wine, and will also discover Bordeaux’s most meritocratic and perhaps also most controversial classification system. This evening’s star-studded line-up will end on a high as you have the chance to taste a mature example of the famous and ultra-lush Château Ausone.
