Bordeaux Super Seconds Masterclass with Trusted Expert Peter Smolarz

Saturday, March 5 | 5:00 - 7:00PM | $200

Style: Seated, In-Person Tasting

In 1855, France created a ranked classification for wines coming from Médoc in Bordeaux, selling prices and consistency in quality to the region. The Châteaux were classified from First to Fifth Growth, and apart from Château Mouton Rothschild, their positions have not changed since. In recent years the price gap between the top five first growths and their lower tier neighbours has grown wider. Thus, the term “Super Seconds” was coined for second growth Château, or those that possess the qualities of a second growth. 

Join Trusted Expert Peter Smolarz for a blind tasting of six of his choice Super Seconds, including: Chateau Leoville Las Cases 2005, Château Mission Haut Brion 2006, Château Cos D’Estournel 2009, Château Pichon Baron 2010, Château Palmer 2015 and Château Ducru Beaucaillou 2016. Delectable pairings of French cheese, foie gras and assorted meats will be provided from our friends at Springbank Cheese Co.
