Texas Wine School Wine Tasting Class: Wines of Bordeaux
Embark on a journey, led by a local independent international Bordeaux wine educator, through the chateaux and vineyards of this great region and discover the magic that is Bordeaux. James King will lead guests through a two-hour wine education class designed by the Bordeaux Ecole de Vin in which attendees will taste the different grapes and styles of Bordeaux.
Wine lovers will evaluate Bordeaux wines and their distinct styles and personalities; discuss the geography and climate, with particular emphasis on the region's multiple viticultural areas and their defining characteristics; and discuss the region's complex multiple classification systems and the laws by which the wines are governed.
The class covers all six styles of Bordeaux wine, including dry whites; sweet whites; St. Emilion, Pomerol and Fronsac; Medoc and Graves; Bordeaux; and Cotes de Bordeaux.
