Saint-Émilion - Bordeaux Wine Tasting & Seminar with Philippe Newlin
2:00pm - 3:30pm
The Nantucket Hotel & Resort
77 Easton St,
Nantucket, MA 02554
Saint-Émilion, one of Bordeaux's most famous appellations, is a great patchwork of different terroirs. Ranging from the ancient limestone plateau that is home to the beautiful UNESCO-protected village, to clay and gravel slopes that cascade down to loamy lowlands, the variety of soils translates into a highly diverse group of top Bordeaux wines. In this seminar we will have a rare opportunity to examine top-flight châteaux offerings through the lens of the land on which their wines are grown. Greats such as Clos Fourtet, Troplong-Mondot, Larcis Ducasse, Figeac and others will be tasted side by side with the goal of better understanding the impact of what lies beneath the vines in what is perhaps the most complex appellation of Bordeaux.
Wines Include: Château Angelus 2004, Château Figeac 2004, Château Clos Fourtet 2011, Château Beausejour-Duffau 2011, Château Clos de l’Oratoire 2012, Château Pavie-Macquin 2012 & Château Larcis-Ducasse 2012.
