Grand Bordeaux tasting showcases the 2005 vintage. Revered by connoisseurs, collectors and critics alike, Bordeaux is one of the greatest wine regions of the world.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to be guided through a 2 hour Masterclass by our experienced wine buyers and sample this exceptional selection of fine wines from some of Bordeaux’s most prestigious Chateaux.

2005 has been heralded as one of the best vintages of the past five decades, with superior quality produced across the appellations.

Compare wine styles from the distinctive left and right banks through to the lesser known but wonderfully rewarding sub-classifications of Moulis and Haut Medoc.

Begin your journey with champagne and canapés on arrival followed by a fine selection of cheeses with the Masterclass.
