Bristol - Compare and Contrast: Bordeaux Vs the New World
Join us to review the recurring contest that has been in full-swing for the past four decades, Bordeaux versus the New World - who is better? At the forefront of the comparison lies the top first growths of Bordeaux against the boutique wineries of California, but the contest filters down throughout all the wines found in these two regions. In addition to comparing the Cabernet Sauvignons and Merlots of Bordeaux against the U.S we shall also look at Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. In addition we'll look at the Sauvignon Blancs and Semillons of Sauternes against the New World. This echoes the famous Judgement of Paris Tasting in 1976... Now YOU will decide the winner!
Does the favoured climatic conditions of the New World suit these Bordeaux grape varieties more? Is it a triumph for the traditionalist or a victory for the modernist? Book now to explore this wonderful tasting...
