Pauillac, Margaux, Saint-Estèphe – Bordeaux – France
An unusual tasting featuring three separate estates tied together by the Cruse and Lorenzetti families. Ch. Pedesclaux is a 5eme Grand Cru Classé from Pauillac. Founded in 1810 it was one of the first estates born from non-aristocratic rule in the Médoc. Ch. d’Issan is a 3eme Grand Cru Classé from Margaux. It is one of the oldest estates in the region, their wine said to have been served during the wedding of Eleanor of Aquitaine and King Henry II of England in 1152. Finally, Ch Lilian Ladouys is a Cru Bourgeois of Saint-Estèphe with roots tracing back to the mid 16th century. This promises to be an exceptional evening for those seeking to experience the range of expressions of Left Bank Bordeaux!
