CHATEAU D'YQUEM

First Growth, unassailably top of the class and the stuff of legend, this, though the building itself is more of a fortified farmhouse than a château, really. The golden, ambrosial expression they produce is famed the world over. Of course all of this is brought about by serious attention to detail.

The botrytised grapes are carefully removed with small secateurs so as not to damage the remaining fruit that is still bringing itself to, well, fruition, with each plot picked over an average of six times in a season. The grapes are pressed immediately upon arrival at the cellar, the juice put straight into new oak barrels and aged for 30 months, with regular topping and racking.

Yquem's philosophy has been the same for five centuries: to finesse nature and produce an average of just one glass of brilliance per vine. If the quality is not worthy of the estate's reputation in a given year, it is not sold under the château name. Nine vintages were thus not marketed by Yquem in the 20th Century. The estate is these days managed by Pierre Lurton on behalf of the L.V.M.H. group.

ANNUAL 1ST GROWTH BORDEAUX TASTING - THE INCREDIBLE 2016 VINTAGE

As Bordeaux specialists, each year when the latest vintage of En Primeur arrives, we like to taste the best of the best. The 1st Growths are the greatest Cabernet and Merlot dominant wines in the world and have held this position for hundreds of years. Embark on the vinous journey of a lifetime, as we taste our way through over $14k worth of the magnificent 2016 vintage. It was thought 2015 would be hard to top, but now in bottle 2016 is even better, and looking like one of the finest vintages of all time.

We will be tasting four of the five famous First Growths from the 1855 classification. Chateau Lafite Rothschild (99/100), Chateau Mouton Rothschild (100/100), Chateau Haut Brion (100/100), and Chateau Margaux (99/100). Chateau Latour unfortunately no longer releases current vintage. Not to leave the right bank out, we also have the iconic Chateau Cheval Blanc (100/100) from Saint-Emilion, and the legendary Chateau Lafleur (99/100) from Pomerol. We will finish with the 2016 vintage of the worlds finest sweet wine, the fabled Chateau d'Yquem (98+/100).

This is a very rare opportunity to try these phenomenal Bordeaux side by side and hear the history and stories of each Chateau.
