Bordeaux: No other wine region is so immediately identifiable by its picturesque landscape, rolling vines dotted by stately Chateau, or recall of a different era, a bygone time! These wines are still sought the world over. Bordeaux is the place of 17thcentury estates who survived through the perils of history to provide us with some of the most iconic, collectible and imitated wines in the world. The home of heady, tobacco-and-cedar scented Cabernet blends and aristocratic (if not underappreciated) whites, Bordeaux is synonymous with the power and prestige of wine! (They're also darn good.)
In this seminar, we delve into the basics of Bordeaux: exploring its varied styles, classification-system, terroirs, and famous estates. We will also compare and contrast a dozen wines from the region. Some of these bottles are rare--all of them will leave you breathless. 5:00pm - 7:00pm
