This episode is the second episode with John Jackson, aka Attorney Somm (on youtube and Instagram), and we are looking at the Bordeaux region in general. John will certainly give you a load of Chateaus to go out and try, and you will learn a little bit more of the sub-regions within Bordeaux and what they can offer. If you have ever wondered about the many classifications systems, I will also go over them. NOTE: I was really proud of myself, thinking I had covered them all, and then after recording, realized I didn’t cover the Graves classification system of 1953. Oh well, that’s for another episode!

Don't forget there is a competition running, to with a virtual wine tasting, hosted by me (open to listens all over the world). More details at the bottom.*
