First course - Rupert & Rothschild Vigerons Classique, 2014 from South Africia exhiibited inviting, fresh raspberry aromas with pomegranate undertones and a subtle, smooth, balanced palate with lingering cranberry and cedar wood nuances.  

Second course - Chateau Malmasion, 2009, Bordeaux. An amazing vintage from vineyards managed by the Rothschild family. Rich fruit, spice, and a long finish.

Third course - Chateau Das Laurents Paisseguin Saint Emilion 2010, Bordeaux. Spicy exotic nose with vanilla, hazelnuts and cocoa. Opens up with a nice earthy minerality and polished fruit.

Fourth course - Chateau Clarke Listrac Medoc 2010, Bordeaux. The top-tier wine from Château Clarke. Beautifully velvetly and supple. A perfect Claret of Merlot and Cabernet giving rich red fruit with a touch of thyme. It should continue to mature for another 10 years.

Dessert course -  Bodega Flechas de Los Andes Grand Malbec, 2011, Argentina.  Reminiscent of a Bordeaux. Creamy dark fruits plus a touch of coffee. Smooth and elegant.
