1985: A Tasting of First Growths

The longer lockdown goes on, the more we are going to spoil you with virtual tastings!

This is a rare opportunity to compare all six of the Left Bank First Growths at a moment when they should be open and perfectly ready to drink.

We will look at how they are doing at 35 years of age with the 1985 vintage; Châteaux Latour, Lafite Rothschild, Mouton Rothschild, Margaux, Haut-Brion – finishing up with the Premier Cru Supérieur Château d’Yquem.

Talking us through the wines will be Jane Anson, whose first book, back in 2012, was Bordeaux Legends, a history of the 1855 First Growths. She will be sharing her insights into how these six estates came to be celebrated as the greatest estates of the region, and what was happening at each one in the 1980s.
