Of the thousands of grape varieties in the world, Bordeaux has given us some of the most well-loved and widely planted, including Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. On their native soil, they are rarely bottled on their own but rather blended to make a more complex and nuanced wine, one greater than the sum of its parts.
Cabernet builds a structured frame and adds dark fruits. Merlot brings a weighty roundness and soft red fruit, and Cab Franc is the flair that makes it special, with herbaceous notes and lifting acidity.
This tried-and-true Bordeaux blend has been replicated around the world. Join us for this class as we dig into why it works so well. We’ll try examples from Bordeaux to get our footing, and then tour the world, tasting interpretations from California, Argentina, South Africa, and Spain. This is a foundational wine recipe that has stood the test of time. Come taste why!
This class will be led by Ginny McClure of new France Wines.
