Wine Tasting 'The Spurrier Master Class' Monday July 4th


On 4th July this year, Steven will again be holding his Master Class at the Club.  As well as tasting cask samples of three top St Julien Crus Classés, he will talk about the  original ‘Judgement’ and introduce a new one – ‘The Judgement of Napa’.This will be an event unique to the Royal Thames Yacht Club.
Steven has secured cask samples of the new 2015 wines from three top chateaux this year, all St Julien Crus Classés and all ‘very good’.  He will guide us through these, explain how they will develop and then compare them with 2012 and 2006 wines from the same chateaux, taken from our own cellars. As part of his Master Class, he will also give you an insight into the ‘Judgement of Paris’.
Those of you who stay on to dine in the Coffee Room will then take part in ‘The Judgement of Napa’. This is a three stage challenge between Steven and Jean-Charles Boisset, who leads Boisset Family Estates in USA representing both the family’s french wines and their own vineyards in California.
Tickets are £40pp for the Master Class and Judgement of Napa.  The Coffee Room Menu and Wine List are available at their customary great value rates for dinner afterwards.  We hope that you will be free to join us for this unique event.
