This special tasting was hosted by Decanter‘s Bordeaux correspondent Jane Anson and Rhône correspondent Matt Walls, who have each written an overview of the masterclass. We asked both to score the four wines from their respective regions as well as the three wines which comprise a blend of Bordeaux and Rhône grapes.
In total the wines tasted were:
Château La Lagune: 2016, 2010, 2009, and 2000
Hermitage La Chapelle rouge: 2016, 2010, and 1991
Hermitage La Chapelle blanc: 2014 (magnum)
Evidence par Caroline Frey: 2011
Duo par Caroline: 2016 and 2010

Introduction by Jane Anson
Can the signature of an owner, and the imprint of organic farming, translate across regions? That was one of the questions asked at Decanter’s masterclass this week, that saw owner Caroline Frey share wines from both her Haut-Médoc third-growth estate Château La Lagune as well as Domaine Paul Jaboulet Aîné’s iconic Hermitage La Chapelle in the northern Rhône.
