Bordeaux – one of the most recognized and appreciated wine regions in the world! This evening we will experience white Bordeaux from Entre-Deux Mers and the Right Bank, a rosé from the Right Bank, and two charming red Bordeaux from the Right and Left Banks.

Bergerac is to the immediate east of Bordeaux, north of the Dordogne river. Opimian sources value wines of quality and we shall try one from Château Pique-Segue that has great potential for cellaring.

Beaujolais produces wines from the ethereal Gamay grape. The best producers of the Beaujolais Crus elicit wines that are low in tannin, sensual & evocative on the palate, guaranteed to make you smile. We will try a basic Beaujolais and two crus.

Finally we will round the evening out by returning to Bordeaux – Sauternes to be exact – for a sweet denouement!

A selection of well-paired hors d’oeuvres catered by Arctic Sustainable Harvesting. NWT Opimian is thrilled to have Arctic Sustainable Harvesting once again pairing their locally harvested wild sustainable products with our wonderful Opimian wines!
