     9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Bordeaux, France

Family-owned for eight generations, Chateau Angelus fully merits its reputation as one of the greatest wines of the entire world, let alone Bordeaux. With the estate’s 23 hectares planted to near-equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc – alongside a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon – and facing in an ideal southerly direction, the wines produced are renowned for their ripeness and silky class. Before voluntarily withdrawing from the Saint-Emilion classification, Angelus was previously one of only five estates ever to have held the coveted Premier Grand Cru Classé ‘A’ rank.

Please join us for what promises to be one of the year’s finest tastings!

Tokaj, Hungary

With its production of both sweet and dry styles, Royal Tokaji is perhaps the most influential producer in the Tokaj region of Hungary’s return to its former glory. Established in 1989 by a group of wine professionals and investors, Royal Tokaji rapidly garnered acclaim for the incredibly high quality of its range of wines, made with the regional speciality of Furmint. This encompasses, among other styles, late-harvest and botrytis-influenced sweet wines, as well as the near-mythical Essencia.

Please join us in welcoming this world-famous producer back to Cambridge!

Bordeaux, France

A classic Grand Cru of Saint-Emilion, at the heart of Bordeaux’s Right Bank, Chateau Trianon can trace its origin back to the sixteenth century, and derives its name from the iconic palace at Versailles. Now under the co-ownership of Dominique Hebrard, formerly of Chateau Cheval Blanc, Trianon derives its unique character from the use of small amounts of the ancient, indigenous Carmenère grape, from old vines, in the final blend. The team takes exquisite care of the vines and winemaking process, as demonstrated by the fact that all grapes on the estate are harvested by hand.
