Once again we are privileged to be able to taste some rare vintages. Member Lance Jaundoo has very generously agreed to share some of his 1980’s Classed Growth Clarets with us. Those of us who were lucky enough to attend his first tasting know what a treat is in store.

Lance has said that these are even better!  Lance is a retired Civil Servant born in Guyana who came to England in 1961 to study law.  In 1965 he decided instead to pursue a career in the Civil Service. In 1979 Lance tasted Ch Talbot 1970 and was so impressed that he resolved to build his own cellar of fine Bordeaux.   The wines that we shall be tasting will be:

1982

Ch. Cheval Blanc
Ch. Calon Ségur
Ch. Canon
Ch. Cos D’Estournel
Ch. Pichon Lalande

 1983

Ch. Margaux
Ch. Palmer

 1986

Ch. Cos D’Estournel
Ch. Pichon Lalande

Please note that this will be a single bottle tasting limited to 18 people. The wines will be presented by Jeffrey Benson. After the tasting there will be a delicious cold supper.
