The seventh annual Institute of Masters of Wine (North America) Bordeaux tasting mirrors the long-established annual Claret tasting in London, UK, and will showcase wines from the Grands Crus Classés of the Médoc and their equivalents from the Right Bank and Graves (including Sauternes).
As is customary, the vintage to be tasted is five years prior to the year of the event (2015) allowing for professional assessment of the wines at a more accessible and revealing stage in their evolution. The IMW (NA) Bordeaux tasting will allow wine professionals the opportunity to taste a comprehensive range of crus classés from the most prestigious appellations of Bordeaux.
This event is deliberately limited in attendee numbers to ensure that the wines are tasted in optimal conditions. Since its purpose is primarily educational rather than promotional, the tasting is in a walk-around, self-poured format. More details on the event and ticket information available on the IMW website
