Tutor and Tasting Workshop

Let's Have Joy and Get Experience with Blind Tasting

Speaker:   Mr. Stephen Lee

Time:       7:30PM – 9:30PM

Date:        12-10-2007

Fee:         HK$480.00 (incl. 6 kinds of wine)

Location:  1 Des Voeux Rd. West, Sheung Wan, H.K.

At the last fundamental wine tasting workshop, we tasted six different varieties of wine. You should have acquired some knowledge and can master the skill in wine tasting to a certain extent. Nevertheless, practice is the key to help us to become experienced and professional.  

This time, Stephen will be presenting a selection of six different wines of white and red which are AOC, Grand Cru and Grand Cru Classe from Bordeaux for you to explore the aroma and bouquet with blind tasting.

Grand Crus Classes represent about top 25 per cent of the Medoc's total wine production from 60 estates.  PREMIERS CRUS, for example, are called FIRST GROWTH like Chateau Lafite in BORDEAUX, according to one of their official CLASSIFICATIONS.  A cru that has been 'classified' is a cru classe, or CLASSED GROWTH.  GRANDS CRUS can also have a very specific meaning, notably in BURGUNDY and ALSACE
