Much as it goes against the grain to promote somebody else’s events this sounds so good that I feel compelled to mention it. All five Bordeaux First Growths have been brought together for a Masterclass at the Decanter Fine Wine Encounter in November. Dates are 13th and 14th November 2010 at the Landmark Hotel in London.
It is a couple of years since I attended a Decanter Fine Wine Encounter but I have always been impressed by their events. Well organised and with a serious selection of wines presented by their growers.
In addition to the First Growths Masterclass the vertical of ten vintages of La Mission Haut Brion also caught my eye. If that is not enough for you there are also Masterclasses on Opus One, Brunello di Montalcino and rare Ports.
Tickets go on sale on 4th August, and I am sure will sell out quickly.
