Chateau Margaux

23 May 2018 9:00 pm

Event Details

Chateau Margaux is a first growth from Bordeaux, located in the commune with which it shares its name. The soils of Margaux are the lightest and most gravely of the Medoc and produce alluring intensely perfumed wines of great refinement with almost velvet-like tannins. With winemaking at the site of the estate dating back to the 12th century it rose to prominence to become one of the original four first growths. Though it suffered from poor guidance in the 19th and 20th centuries under new guidance the estate has been reborn under new leadership to once again exceed expectations. Come experience the pinnacle of classic Bordeaux in an unforgettable evening with a legendary Château.

Domaine du Closel

Event Details

For our final tasting of the year we will be visiting Domain du Closel – Grand Cru of the Loire Valley. Located just south west of Angers the appellation of Savennières is home to only 36 winemakers and 130 ha of vineyards. Records of winemaking in the Fief des Vaults go back to 1495 with the Château des Vaults built in the 17th century. Domain du Closel are known for intense white Chenin Blanc wines, but also a small amount of reds, the intensity of both boosted by thin soils and south-west orientation. Join us and finish of this year’s tour of the great French regions!
