You often can tell when you have a bordeaux in the glass, even when served blind. Not always of course, but a good quality Bordeaux has a distinct style. A certain austere character with hints of tobacco and cedar wood are classic features. Also, the ageing in small oak barrels gives a special Bordeaux feeling. However, it is not at all easy to say if the wine comes from the left bank or the right bank, that is from Médoc or from Saint Emilion.

Join us in Bordeaux in October and discover for yourself whether it’s easy or difficult. And get a lot of practice at the same time. There will be many tastings!
