Course: Bordeaux

Class 3: Beyond the Médoc

  1. First, guess which wine is which.
    • Which wine do you think is from the Right Bank? A, B or C?
    • From Graves? A, B or C?
    • From the Haut-Médoc? A, B or C?

  2. Now take off the paper bags to reveal the wines.
    • Any surprises? Could you identify the origin of each wine?
    • Was one more obvious than the others?



Now that you know which wine is which, you can learn more about them by carefully repeating the Four S tasting process.

  • Can you identify varietal cues that you may have missed previously?
