Event description

Description

There are many arguments as to why buying magnums over the standard format is preferable – from pure aesthetics to sheer greed (there’s more wine to go around!) – but from an ageing and scientific perspective there can be no argument. Larger formats, and in particular magnums, have a greater capacity for ageing as there’s more wine in the bottle and less ullage [empty space between wine and cork], which means a proportionately smaller amount of air in the bottle – which is what causes ageing (through oxidation). Therefore well-stored magnums of the world’s greatest wines will often develop greater nuances and more complex flavours than wine aged in standard bottles.


This tasting not only gives guests the rare opportunity to taste some of the greatest wines from across France, Italy and Spain (including a wine regarded as one of the best wines of the 20th Century) encompassing the famed regions of Bordeaux, Bugundy, Tuscany, Champagne and Ribera del Duero. But the chance to taste these iconic wines from well stored Magnum formats. Led by our Head of Fine Wine and advanced Court of Master Sommelier, Lukasz Kolodziejczyk, the evening will provide unique insight into the terroir and winemaking philosophy of each of these producers and vineyards.
