Classed growth claret comes to London

London is to host one of the world’s biggest retrospective tastings of classed growth claret on 9 November.

Organised by the Institute of Masters of Wine, the tasting will feature Bordeaux from the 2007 vintage and will include reds from the first growth properties of the Médoc and their Right Bank equivalents.

A selection of Grands Crus Classés wines from Sauternes and Barsac will also be available to taste.

Attendees will have the opportunity to sample the red and sweet wines both blind and with labels showing, except for the first growths, which will not be shown blind.

“This event remains an outstanding opportunity to taste and compare the top wines of Bordeaux and re-assess the vintage after two years in bottle,” said Mark Bingley MW, chairman of the Institute’s events committee.

Tickets for the tasting are priced at £95 each (MW and Institute student discounts apply) and are available to book via the events section of the IMW’s website

The tasting is split into two sessions: 9.45am – 11.30am and 11.30am – 2.45pm on 9 November, and will be held in Vintners’ Hall on Upper Thames Street, London, EC4V 3BG.
