So, it seems it is increasingly official. Women make better tasters.
And younger tasters are more likely to have more varied “emotional responses” to different wines.
As usual, there is a bit of real science and some news buried in the article somewhere, and the headline writer has COMPLETELY missed the point, but it is interesting to see that there are actual measurable differences between tasters that can be attributed to sex and age.
This is about the ability to distinguish wines from each other, and to feel emotionally affected by them, which means it would be great to have more suggestions from younger and female members.
What it does NOT mean is that we older males aren’t handy at dinner parties … if only to use our experience to test for faults!
