Part of WOW: World of Wine Intensive. The full series can be purchased here.
You can't discuss French wine without first nodding to Bordeaux. Bordeaux has more land under vine than any other wine-producing region in France. Located directly off of the Atlantic Ocean, the region has a unique history, dating as far back as the 3rd Century. From age-worthy, structured red wines, to dry white wines, and the sweet and fortified wines of Sauternes, Bordeaux sets the caliber for wines across the world, especially those Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot dominated blends. Join us as we explore all that Bordeaux has to offer. Topics of discussion include the principle grape varietals of Bordeaux, the 1855 Classification, top growths of Bordeaux, and wine-growing viticulture, regions, and climate. Open any Bordeaux (or any wine!) from your cellar to sip along and virtually 'cheers' the class.
Zoom links will be sent via email on the morning of the class. Follow-up notes are sent the following day.
