The Crus Classés de Graves is is different from any other French classification. It's the only classification that ranks both red and white wines from the same AOC.

Only 16 chateaux exist in the classification and there is no ranking within it. Of the 16, only six are classified for both white and red wines, while the remaining 10 are only classified for either white or red. We invite you to come taste Cru Classés de Graves and learn the intricacies of the classification, the chateaux, and the Pessac-Leognan AOC.

In this exclusive one-time event, we'll discover high quality examples from this unique category of fine wines from Bordeaux during a seated edu-tasting hosted by Special Guest Brinda Bourhis, Brand Ambassador of the Crus Classés de Graves, and moderated by our own Master Sommelier David Glancy

All wines will be from the exceptional 2018 vintage!

  1.  Chateau Bouscaut Red
  2.  Chateau Haut Bailly Red
  3.  Chateau Malartic Lagraviere Red
  4.  Chateau Couhins White
  5.  Chateau Couhins Lurton White

Hybrid - Room/Zoom:  We've recently invested in some serious AV technology upgrades to create an integrated Hybrid Room/Zoom experience for all students. Both "Roomers" and "Zoomers" are able to engage with us, the speakers, and each other during the live event. Recordings are also available after the class. Make your format selection at checkout.

Guided Tasting Exercises: Students will enjoy guided tastings selected by Master Sommelier David Glancy and our Cellar Master to bring learning objectives to life and practice your tasting techniques. Roomers will taste in the classroom.  Zoomers will have tasting kits they can either pickup or have delivered for an additional fee.  View wine pickup and delivery options.
