Welcome to another brilliant #TWSTaste!
If you’re new to The Community and need help with how to use the forum for the tasting and what the tasting involves, have a read of our guide 'How To - Take part in our virtual #TWSTaste events
This week, we’re trying two ‘aged to perfection’ wines from our latest Fine Wine List:
Urbina Reserva Especial, Rioja 2006
Cour-Cheverny Cuvée Renaissance, Le Petit Chambord 2015
Here’s how things will work:
- We’ll post a poll to see who’s here - please let us know, and feel free to say hi and start chatting before we start.
- To begin, we’ll invite you all to pour a glass, have a swirl and take in the aromas, and post your thoughts and first impressions. Feel free to take your time and have a good swirl and sniff.
- We’ll then taste the wines together, one by one and ask you to share your own tasting note. Feel free to add any additional food matches and/or your thoughts on how well the wine is drinking now, and how much longer it might age. Anything goes, and there are no wrong answers!
- After this, we’ll possibly have time to ask for your mark out of 10, favourite wine of the two or final thoughts.
And after that, if people want to continue chatting about the wines then please do!
