As part of their training, students of the MBA Wine Marketing and Management visited three vineyards.First of all, they were received at the prestigious Château Cheval Blanc (Grand Cru Classé A Saint-Emilion), to discover the new wine warehouse, designed by the architect Christian de Portzamparc and officially opened in June 2011.

Later, the group went to the Château d’Yquem (the only First Classified High in 1855), for a tasting of the 2005 vintage, before visiting the vineyard, listed historical monument.

The day ended at Château Guiraud, with a presentation of the “botrytisation”* process, which gives the wine from this property the features of a great vintage of Sauternes.
