World of Wine: Fantastic France!

World of Wine: Fantastic France!

Everything you have always wanted to know about French wines!

 At this tasting, they will decode French wines for you and give you the keys to understanding where they use the most common grape varieties.

The next time you go shopping for French wine you will understand the regions and how this affects the flavours you will encounter in the bottle.

You’ll taste wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc.

Bordeaux has for centuries been a global byword for premium quality wine.

It brings to mind the villages of Margaux, St Julien, and St Emilion and their robust, complex reds which evolve over decades in the bottle.

They unwrap the mysteries which shroud these wines: is it the climate that makes these wines so special?

The wine-making practices?

Or, the grapes themselves?

The Rhone Valley was wowing people with deep, smoky Syrah (the original name for Shiraz) long before the Australians discovered it!

The Loire Valley is often referred to as the ‘garden of France’ thanks to its lush, verdant countryside and produces some of the most delicious Sauvignon Blanc in the world.

In Burgundy, we find wines that have captured many a wine lover’s heart: Chablis, Meursault, Gevery-Chambertin, a veritable line-up of wine royalty!

You will discover exactly what it is that makes these wines so special and learn how to pick up a bargain or two.

(Note, this evening is part of our core 8-week course – book all 8 evenings and save £55! It’s flexible, so if you have to skip an evening you can pick it up next time it runs).

This evening is suitable for all levels of wine knowledge!
