Bordeaux has found a way to get young wine lovers to take an interest in Bordeaux wines. Since a few years back La Commanderie du Bon Temps in Médoc, Graves and Sauternes organizes “The Left Bank Bordeaux Cup” for wine clubs at business schools and universities. Initially, the competition was only open to French and European schools. But now wine clubs from schools all the world compete for a place in the prestigious final held every June at Château Lafite-Rothschild in Pauillac.
This year, 45 teams took part and most of them were eliminated during the year in local competitions. In the Bordeaux final 8 teams in total, from America, China, England, Denmark and France, competed. The winner was Cambridge University. Wharton came second and the Copenhagen Business School took the third place.
The Left Bank Bordeaux Cup is organised by La Commanderie du Bon Temps.
