The Bordeaux Collection Cellar Tasting

You would be forgiven for thinking you’d taken a wrong turn onto a movie set when walking up the embellished staircase of Lancaster House to the gentle hum of the string quartet, only to find the elegant setting of our Bordeaux Collection tasting.  

Extravagant? Well even if a little, it was certainly justified by the wine collection awaiting guests at the top of those stairs. We’d even go as far to say there are few settings which could live up to the history and excellence that goes into each bottle. So, the neighbouring house to the Royals would have to do.


Direct from the Châteaux cellars, we were treated to a selection of over 50 wines which showcased vintages of legend, and the nuances in viniculture and winemaking across the sprawling appellations. 

Truly a tasting like no other, it was a real pinch-me moment for many of us on the Bibendum team, and a particularly special first cellar tasting for Valeria Rodriguez in her new position as Head of Fine Wine.

“It is challenging to express the immense pride I felt towards the teams of Bibendum and Compagnie Médocaine, as well as our customers, for the wonderful tasting event we hosted earlier this week," she shares.  

We had the pleasure of hosting over 120 customers, and our entire sales team, spanning from Scotland to the South of England. The truth is, I received nothing but words of praise for this exceptional experience. It was a day of celebration.”  

In attendance? Iconic figures from the likes of Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Cos d'Estournel, Château Smith Haut Lafitte, and many more.
