Continuing our celebration of white Bordeaux throughout September we’d like to invite you to attend a tasting masterclass with our WSET diploma qualified educator, Katya Sapozhnikova.
Bordeaux whites are usually a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, chosen for its high acidity and fresh flavours of gooseberry and citrus; Sémillon, adding weight and depth, and in lesser quantities Muscadelle for its flowery and grapey notes. The results are award winning styles ranging from light, fresh and zesty, to bigger wines with intensity, complex aromas and an ability to age. The sweets are a late harvest style (boasting ‘noble rot’) and the sparklings are largely undiscovered gems.
You will be welcomed with an aperitif to freshen up your palate before Katya will guide you through six more wines from this classic region. The tasting will feature various appellations throughout Bordeaux, including Entre Deux Mers, Fronsac, Barsac & Sauternes.
In addition to this, various nibbles and sharing boards will also be provided throughout the evening.
We very much hope to see you there, it’s a tasting not to be missed.
