Guests will enjoy a tutored tasting hosted by Haut-Bailly's own Véronique Sanders featuring a vertical of the Château's Grand Vin. Wines to be sampled include Le Parde de Haut-Bailly 2012 & Haut-Bailly 2004, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2013.

This is a set to be a fantastic tasting & a rare chance to get to grips with one of Bordeaux's most notable Chateaux.
