The two most revered regions in the world of fine wine. Almost every great cellar in the world contains examples of the top wines, vintages and producers from these two famed wine growing areas. At complete odds not only in the grape varieties, but style, complexity and approach to the wine-making business, the aim of the masterclass will not be to decide which region is better, but to learn about differences between these regions and to appreciate each for its own merits.
Taking on three distinct flights, the evening led by our Head of Fine Wine and former Fat Duck Sommelier Lukasz Kolodziejczyk, will see Burgundy and Bordeaux go head to head across a variety of different producers, premier crus and classified growths. The flights will also pit wines of similar maturity allowing guests to evaluate and compare the aging capacity and potential of these great wines.

The evening will also include a champagne reception as well as some food to accompany the wines throughout the evening.
In the unlikely event that on the evening there is a fault with any of the wines due to be tasted, if there isn’t a replacement bottle available, a different wine of equivalent quality will be opened as a suitable replacement.
