Bordeaux has been one of the most prominent and dominant wine regions of the world throughout history. Its very name is synonymous with opulence and iconic wines. Yet the big dollar signs and flashy châteaux are only part of the story. In this online class series we will explore all aspects of what makes these wines so well-known, the history of the region and the hidden gems that lie within still waiting to be discovered and appreciated.
Classes in the series include:
Class 1: Left Bank – Médoc – October 8th
Exploring the iconic wine regions of the Left Bank and learning more about
the Classification of 1855 that continues to define the region to this day.
Class 2: Left Bank – Graves & Entre-Deux-Mers – October 15th
The southern part of the Left Bank is home to some of the most spectacular wines and styles of this French region.
This class looks at the dry and sweet wines that are the specialties of this area.
Class 3: Right Bank & the Dordogne – October 22nd
The wines of this area are supple yet structured, and focused on the maligned yet magnificent red varietal Merlot.
Journey to this beautiful area and learn to appreciate these exquisite wines even more!
Class 4: Southwest France & the Côtes – October 29th
Overlooked throughout the centuries, the wine culture of Southwest France has lived in the shadow of the more prominent Bordeaux proper.
This region as well of the lesser-known but equally wonderful Côtes of Bordeaux is the topic for today’s class.
For this class I am partnering with The Organic Cellar, and you can buy these wines directly from Brian before class to get the full tasting experience. If you are joining the full 4 class tour, plan ahead and get the Vinolust Tour of Bordeaux 12-pack. This case contains the 3 wines being opened each class at 20% off the retail price.
