Left Bank Bordeaux Cup

The Left Bank Bordeaux Cup is one of the world’s biggest amateur wine tasting competitions.

Now in its 11th year the cup was the brainchild of Baron Eric de Rothschild, and was originally called 20 Sur Vin.

Teams face a series of preliminary rounds with tasks ranging from multiple choice questions to blind tastings in which they must correctly place wines in age order and in the correct chateau, appellation, property and vintage.

The final is eventually fought out by two teams each from the United States, Asia, France and the rest of Europe.

This year’s final round was held at the prestigious Bordeaux estate Chateau Lafite Rothschild with the winning team from EDHEC Lille.

Last year’s winners from Harvard Business School.
