Interesting Bordeaux wine tasting with quirky anecdotes

With the most exclusive wines available for tasting, the highlights of this exquisite Bordeaux wine tasting weekend will be world-renowned wineries Château Gruaud-Larose from St Julien as well as Château Haut-Brion and Laville Haut-Brion from Pessac. These exclusive rarities were selected with the help of Bordeaux expert Elke Drescher who will also be presenting the wines on both evenings – spiced up with the Jagdhof’s sommelier Albin Mayer’s quirky anecdotes and historical references for each of the selected vintages. To accompany the meal, we will be serving matching table wine from the same region.

Bordeaux wine tasting with Best Bottle evening

The symphony of senses is set to start on Thursday with a Best Bottle evening, with each participant bringing along the finest wine from their own personal cellar for tasting. The participants enjoy the surprise wines in a blind tasting with a matching tasting menu – it’s going to be great fun! Minimum requirement for each wine: 95/100 Parker points, 19/20 Gabriel points.

‘The Jagdhof’s Wine Days are so special because of the sheer number of mature rarities that you can discover and experience here. The awe and passion for these wines increase with every sip and every tasting. This weekend is perfect for connoisseurs of mature wines, but also provides an ideal platform for newcomers who would like to get closer to these rarities.’

Bordeaux wine tasting with wines from St Julien and Pessac

On Friday the journey of oenological delights continues to the region of St Julien. At the heart of one of the most beautiful gardens in Médoc lies the picturesque Château Gruaud-Larose, founded in 1757 and classified Deuxième Grand Cru Classé since 1855, the second-highest level of this classification. Today the 129-hectare estate cultivates 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. Vintages from between 1928 and 1986 will be brought to the Jagdhof table.

With vines averaging 40 years old, Château Haut-Brion has been going for almost 600 years. Magnificently situated on the outskirts of Pessac, Château Haut-Brion is a unique jewel among the wineries of Bordeaux. Its immediate neighbour is the less ancient Château La Mission which, together with Château Haut-Brion, is one of the region’s oenophile hotspots. On Saturday we treat your palate to a range of flavours: from fabulous mature wines to 1990s vintages by La Mission Haut-Brion, Laville Haut-Brion and – as a special treat – Château Haut-Brion.
