Corney & Barrow Tasting
With only 42 places available, this event was fully booked soon after bookings opened. Hosted by the very eloquent Mr. Adam Brett-Smith, who is the Managing Director of Corney & Barrow, this event featured the wonderful wines of the 2001 vintage from Domaine Leflaive. Our members certainly know a good event when one comes along, and their quick and vigorous bookings meant that no guests were able to be allocated seats for this very prestigious event. The fact that the tasting was complimentary with no costs involved certainly help the enthusiastic response. This time, Adam was again accompanied by Mrs Clare Burke, the Director of Sales for Corney & Barrow.

The tasting went very smoothly, and the quality of the wines shone through in spite of their youth. Being able to taste three very excellent Grand Crus (Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru; Bâtard Montrachet Grand Cru; Chevalier Montrachet Grand Cru) at ‘tea-time’ from such a respected domaine certainly justifies membership to the IWFSS. The many happy faces at the end of the event reinforced the success of the afternoon.
Hugel & Paul Jaboulet-Aîné Dinner
Hugel & Paul Jaboulet-Aîné are already very well established and respected names in French viticulture, and ‘La Chapelle’ is probably one of the most famous wines of France. Therefore, even though this event came only one day after the excellent Domaine Leflaive Tasting, the fact that it was held at the very elegant Ritz Carlton restaurant of Summer Pavilion, with MasterChef Fok Kai Ye having crafted a sumptuous 6 course dinner to match the 12 excellent wines to be savored, we had a very respectable turnout of about 50 members and guests for the event.

Nicholas Jaboulet and Etienne Hugel graced the event by their presence and explained more about the wines of the night to our members. The highlight of the night was certainly the 1985 Hermitage ‘La Chapelle’, and we were not disappointed.
