Event Description: " ...Recognizing the aromas is more difficult than it sounds, it's like meeting an old friend on the street and not being able to remember his name. Le Nez du Vin is a great icebreaker, the minute you open the lid, everyone wants to get into the act ... " New York Times

"Bordeaux special: Left Bank / Right Bank"

Bordeaux is most often separated into two parts ?the right bank and the left bank. On the left bank, Cabernet Sauvignon rules, and the M?doc region hugs the west side of the Gironde river. Below the M?doc, following the river as it turns, lies the Graves region.

The right bank of Bordeaux is where Merlot and Cabernet Franc shine best. Merlot is typically used more in the blends, particularly in the surrounding satellite regions of Bordeaux. The heart of the right bank is the city of St.-?milion and the wine region that surrounds it. Next door is Pomerol, a small but intense red wine producer.

Using the educational and absolutely FUN tool Le Nez du Vin ? ("The Nose of Wine", 54 aromas) developed by French wine professional & aficionado Jean Lenoir, you will learn:
- how to recognize aromas... and simply develop your sense of smell!
- how to classify them and make the difference between aromas from the same category (fruits, flowers, spices...)

In the same time, you will also BLIND taste around 6 wines very representative of the Left and the Right banks in Bordeaux region... including some Grands Crus!
... and you will learn:
- how to taste wine
- how to detect grapes and specific wine areas based on the aromas you are scenting...
and that you learned to recognize in the 1st exercise.

Register TODAY for this fun, learning & absolutely interactive workshop!

... event limited to 12 guests only!!...
"First come first served!"

Soft appetizers will be provided
