What’s so interesting about spending an evening focusing on two Bordeaux first growths (in addition to ensuring an evening of star quality wine!) is that the two styles, the two expressions can so much more easily be compared (and contrasted). Château Latour is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, while Château Haut-Brion is a split between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Latour is up in the northern Médoc and picks later; Haut-Brion is down in the suburbs of Bordeaux city itself, at Pessac-Léognan, and picks earlier. Both benefit from well-draining, deeply gravelly soil. How similar, and how different do they smell, feel, and taste?

Find out on 12 October as we have selected a series of vintages to show each château at its best (some of the greatest wines ever produced are included), as well as the long arc of bottle-age evolution each château delivers when the wine has been cellared.
