Annual Claret tasting (2015 vintage)

5 November 2019 , 9:30 AM - 2:00 PM  | London

Save the date for the IMW's most anticipated tasting of the year!

We will be showcasing the 2015 vintage of the Grands Crus Classés from the Médoc, Pessac Léognan, St Emilion and the top Pomerol estates, including most of the First Growths and their Right Bank equivalents.

The annual walk-around tasting is a rare opportunity to review one vintage of Bordeaux two years after bottling and compare wines of the highest quality across all Bordeaux’s top appellations. The tasting will take place, at Vintner’s Hall in London, across three sessions (morning tasting, afternoon tasting and a blind tasting). Tickets will allow admission to one session only.
