An opportunity to compare classic new and old world winesDate/Time
Date(s) - Thu 30th Nov, 2017
The Naval Club
We will compare the attractiveness of Australian wines with those of France, and see if people can tell which is which. The wines will be served blind in pairs in a similar style, with members voting after each pair for which they preferred and – if they wish – guessing which wine was which. The wines below are not in tasting order.
The French wines chosen by Jeffrey Benson are:
2015 Naturalys Viognier (Pays d’Oc) Domaine Gerard Bertrand; 2011 Domaine de L’Eglise Pomerol;
2013 Chateauneuf du Pape ‘Reserve de Château Fortia’;
2013 Crozes Hermitage ‘Terre d’Eclat’ Dom de la Ville Rouge; 2013 Cornas ‘La Sabarotte’ Domaine Courbis.
