World of Wine - Bordeaux, Rhone & S.France

World of Wine - Bordeaux, Rhone & S.France

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wine tasting on Bordeaux, Rhone and the South of France. Time for someclassic blockbuster reds!

 Claret, traditional-British for Bordeaux, has been a firm favourite of ours for centuries. The quintessential classic reds from high-esteemed villages such as Margaux, Pauillac and St. Emilion are those that are layered, complex and destined to develop over decades before being enjoyed. We will explore why this is and focus on the key grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc to understand what makes good Bordeaux great.

Part Two – Rhone & the South France

In the South of France lies the Rhone Valley, its’ myriad of canals and its abundance of vineyards. Here we find the blockbuster Syrah (Shiraz) and its’ multifaceted styles. In addition we find the spicy Grenache, and these two grapes together exist because of the hot climate down here, making more intense and full-bodied wines. We’ll explore classics such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Vacqueras and Hermitage and compare them to their inexpensive counterparts dotted around Mediterranean coast in Southern France.

All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, use of professional tastings glasses.
