Jagdhof Wine Days – oenophile masterpieces

The tasting of superlative wines continues! From 11 to 14 October, it’s all about oenophile treasures at the Jagdhof as Wine Days is set to take place for the second time!

With the most exclusive wines available for tasting, the highlights of this exquisite 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be presenting the wines on both evenings – spiced up with the Jagdhof’s sommelier Albin Mayer’s quirky anecdotes and historical references for each of the selected vintages.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.

Best Bottle

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 OR they can select a bottle from the Jagdhof’s cellar. Bottles must be handed over to reception or to sommelier Albin Mayr. The participants then 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.

Château Gruaud-Larose

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.

Château Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion

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 at the Jagdhof 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.
