Description

The price above is per household and includes everything you'll need for this tasting, which we'll deliver to your doorstep ahead of this event.

Delve into Bordeaux’s unique terroir as we guide you through the region, talking about its sub-regions, history and most significant wines. This case includes examples of the region’s lesser-known styles, as well as some of the more famous names and a delicious sweet wine. Your host will help you to pin down the characteristics that typify some of the areas and communes. By comparing and contrasting the flavours and aromas in front of you, you will be sure to leave with a firmer grasp of the lie of Bordeaux’s land.

We will arrange a delivery of a selection of wines from Bordeaux, a set of glassware and a corkscrew directly to your home. In addition, we have partnered with Paxton & Whitfield, who will deliver three artisan cheeses to accompany the wines in the tasting. On the evening of the event, you’ll log in via Zoom where our expert host will take you through three of the wines. The ticket price includes full-sized bottles (75cl) of all the wines except the sweet (37.5cl) that you will be tasting, so you can share the experience with family and friends.

The virtual tasting will start at 6.30pm and last for one hour and 15 minutes. Once a ticket has been booked, we’ll email you to confirm the details of your delivery.

Wines to be tasted on the evening:

2018 Ch. Villa Bel-Air Blanc, Graves, Bordeaux
2017 Berry Bros. & Rudd Good Ordinary Claret by Dourthe, Bordeaux
2014 Ch. Branaire-Ducru, 4ème Cru Classé, St Julien, Bordeaux
