VCL Vintners’ French Wine Tasting Trip

VCL recently escaped from the office for a few days and headed over to the famed wine-growing region of Bordeaux, France.

We had a fabulous time visiting the beautiful Chateau Angelus, Chateau Canon and the impressive Clos Fortet, which is a MUST visit for the serious wine lover. Our tasting notes gave us the Chateau Canon Grand Cru Classé as the preferred wine.

We enjoyed brushing up on our knowledge of wines from across the region with Tim Atkin, Master of Wine, at the Beychevelle room, and got to compare notes.

It was great to explore an area that is so prestigious in our industry and we have returned to London even more passionate about wine.
