We’re getting together with Quod at The Old Bank Hotel to bring you an event that showcases some of the best wines that Bordeaux has to offer, served along expertly prepared food at one of Oxford’s top restaurants.

The wines will be presented by Bordeaux specialist Thibaut Richard, who will be coming over from Bordeaux itself to give us an insight into the world’s most famous wine region.

We will enjoy a flight of five wines over the course of the evening, beginning with bubbles - with the Château Dulong Cremant de Bordeaux. The starter will be accompanied by the gorgeously grassy Château Haut Mouleyre Sauvignon Gris – an excellent example of the new wave of white wines coming out of Bordeaux.

The main course will see us comparing two wines – one left and one right bank. From the right bank we will serve magnums of the Château La Patache Pomerol (£70) from the excellent 2015 vintage. This wine is rich, ripe and luscious – and a great favourite of our MD Ted Sandbach!

The star of the night, however, will surely be the Deuxieme Cru Classé Château Léoville-Poyferré St. Julien from another excellent vintage – this time 1995. This wine retails at £125, and has gained scores of 90 from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, and of 93 from Wine Spectator. Its concentrated blackcurrant fruit and subtle notes of tobacco make this a stunning wine to savour.

We’ll finish with a dessert course paired with the world’s most famous dessert wine - a Sauternes. The Château Rieussec Sauternes 2009 (£49.99) is another top scorer, having gained 95-97 points from Robert Parker, and 92-95 from Wine Spectator.

We hope you’ll join us for what promises to be an excellent experience. Early booking is advised as places are strictly limited!

Waterkloof is an independent, family-owned biodynamic farm overlooking False Bay on The Western Cape of South Africa. Acquired in 2004 after a ten-year search by winemaking Anglo-Frenchman Paul Boutinot, the estate has quickly gone from strength-to-strength earning numerous awards and listings in some of the world's most acclaimed restaurants including Azurmendi, The Test Kitchen, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and The Ledbury.

Paul's son Louis (who is involved with all areas of the business from cellar to table) will be showcasing some of their wines -many of which are crafted in tiny quantities- and sharing the fascinating Boutinot family story, as well as the amazing happenings at Waterkloof, where horses are preferred to tractors, the farming is 100% self-sufficient and leopards roam at night.

Founded in 1825, Joseph Perrier has been owned and run by the same family since 1888. Champagne Joseph Perrier owns 21 hectares of vineyards, situated in the heart of the region on the right bank of the River Marne, around Hautvillers and Cumières – two villages classed 93% in the ‘échelle des crus’. They are mostly planted with Pinot Noir but include 2 hectares of Chardonnay. The cellars stretch over three kilometres and date back to the Gallo-Roman period.

The name ‘Cuvée Royale’ celebrates the elegance and history of cuvées once supplied to HRH Queen Victoria and King Edwards VII in years gone by. Indeed the royal connections with this prestigious house have remained strong throughout its continued history.

Martin Gamman, who represents Joseph Perrier in the UK, will present a fascinating tasting of 6 top Champagnes from this prestigious house, including the Cuvée Royale Vintage 2008, the Cuvée Joséphine 2008 and the rare Blanc de Noirs 2009 Single Vineyard Brut Nature. Certainly this will be a very special tasting!
