The New Classics Fine Wine Tasting
Discover the classic fine wines of tomorrow, before everyone else does!
When you think of the truly iconic wines of the world, names such as Ch. Lafite, Petrus or Dom Perignon spring to mind, and there is no doubt they are exceptional wines. However with a pricetag running into 3 or even 4 figures a bottle, they are far beyond the reach of 99% of the world's wine consumers.
Ch. Lafite 1982, one of the most revered bottlings of all time and reaching prices today of around £45,000 a case, when it was first made sold at just £17 a bottle! So on tonight's tasting we ask the question, 'What are tomorrow's iconic wines?' What are the wines that sell for an achievable amount of money today that can compete with these notorious wines for quality, they just simply don't have the prestige or fame of these examples?
We will present a selection of 6 wines that we think are as good as anything you could put next to them, and all would retail at under £40 a bottle. The lineup is top secret! But expect some unusual wines, or unusual regions, from new and emerging fine wine regions. Wines that are famous to us in the trade, but have not yet reached global acclaim and silly pricetags.
All accompanied by some nibbles and full tasting sheets, this should be one of the events of the year!
This tasting would make a great gift for the wine afficianado in your life - just click on the 'send me a gift voucher' link in the confirmation email you receive after booking and we'll post one out to you.
