Chateau Lascombes Vertical Tasting Tutored by General Manager Dominique Befve

Chateau Lascombes is a 2nd Classed Growth property in Margaux, one of the best communes in the Bordeaux region. The chateau used to be owned by Bass Charrington, the huge brewing company when it was not performing at its peak! In 2001 it was sold to entrepreneur Yves Vatelot who invested heavily in modernising the chateau, and since then the quality of the wine has increased significantly.

In what promises to be a fascinating evening the general manager of Château Lascombes, Dominique Befve will explain the importance of  vineyard management and the vinification practices at Lascombes - in essence how he has made such major improvements compared to the previous owners, Bass Charrington, using the same basic ingredients.

He will begin with a pairing of one of the last vintages of the previous management against the first vintage of the new management (2001) to set a benchmark, then he will present 6 more vintages to show how they have gradually actioned their various programmes of improvements. There will 9 vintages in all on tasting:

2010,2009,2007,2006,2005,2004,2002,2001,1998

The tasting will start at 7 with a Champagne reception and gourmet canapés and end at around 9.30 with a bowl of hot food (a vegetarian option can be provided). The tasting will be held in the fabulous purpose-built tasting room of the Antique Wine Company, a prestigious West End wine merchant.

I have reserved 12 tickets at the very special group price of £59 (the normal ticket price is £125!).

Cheers,

Christos

    Hi Christos unfortunately an urgent family problem has arisen and I am unable to attend tomorrow. As you have a wait list is it possible to sell my ticket to someone else and refund my money?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
