Bordeaux Grands Vins: best or second best?

Best or second best?

28-50 is proud to team up with Wine Source in London to bring some classified wines and their second labels from the Bordeaux region to our venues.

It should be highlighted that some “second” labels are regularly outperforming the “first” wines from the same estate.

Can you tell the difference in quality? Which is the Grand Vin and which is the little brother, Second Vin? Challenge yourself if you are feeling adventurous and ask the sommelier to serve the pair of wines blind.
