An Epic day of Bordeaux Cru Classe Wines and Gourmet Food

Tuesday 25th of September
Late Lunch - £75 per person   (3pm - 5pm)
Dinner - £145 per person (7.30pm to 11pm)

We have two fabulous events lined up for on Tuesday the 25th of September.  The lunch is limited to 12 people and is effectively a mini masterclass on Bordeaux.  It is designed for those that wish to learn and understand the region in a bit more detail from one of Bordeaux leading figures.   

The evening is like all our normal wine dinners -  fun, informative and a celebration of food and wine.

The menu will be released shortly in a follow-up email but remember we can cater for all dietary requirements.

I have known Lionel Dougnac for several years now and his knowledge of Bordeaux is simply incredible and he is one of the best tasters I had ever seen.   Every year at the En-Primeur tastings I learn something new and invaluable.   He is also part of the new wave of Bordelaise that wants to travel and meet consumers outside of France!  A revelation and maybe a realisation that the world needs to fall in love with their wines all over again. 

We are in for a treat - we have persuaded him to come to Park House for the day and show us some incredible wines from a forgotten vintage and explain to wine fans of Cardiff what makes Bordeaux so appealing and sexy.

The Wines on show:
2011 Château Haut-Bailly, Pessac Leognan
2011 Château la Mission Haut-Brion, Pessac Leognan *

The wines on show are incredible and come from the leading estates in Bordeaux and we are incredibly grateful for the Lionels support as this dinner would be north of £250 per person if we had to buy all the wine!
