Bordeaux First Growth Fine Wine Masterclass

The Clockwork Building, 45 Beavor Lane, London W6 9AR
SOLD OUT
Join us for a seated masterclass to discover the First Growths of Bordeaux.

The most famous wines from the world’s most revered region require very little introduction. The wines from Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild, Haut Brion, Margaux and Latour have long captured the imagination of wine enthusiasts since the 17th century, from Thomas Jefferson and Samuel Pepys, to modern-day oligarchs, internet entrepreneurs and Heads of State. Incredibly during that time these five estates have continued to remain at the very top of the fine wine pyramid in both quality and prestige. In fact these wineries hold 4 of the top 10 most expensive wines ever sold at auction.

This masterclass will present you with the unique opportunity to taste two mature vintages from each of these great estates side by side. Allowing you to appreciate and compare their unique identities and style. With vintages covering three decades from the 70’s to the 90s’, this tasting will also showcase each of these wines’ unique capability for aging. The tasting will be expertly led by Cult Wines Head of Fine Wine and Master Sommelier Lukasz Kolodziejczyk who will provide commentary, insights and extensive first-hand experience of visiting and tasting the wines from these Chateaux throughout his career.

An evening not to be missed for any wine lover.
This masterclass will be strictly limited to 10 seats.
