Bordeaux and South France
Join us as we taste some classic French wines from the major wine regions of Bordeaux, Languedoc Rousillon, Provence and beyond!
Experience the range and variety of delicious wine styles which they produce. Claret, traditional-British for Bordeaux, has been a firm favourite of ours for centuries. The quintessential classic reds from 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 - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc to understand what makes good Bordeaux great.
In the South of France lies 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 taste some Southern France classics and some more unusual counterparts dotted around Mediterranean coast in Southern France.
