Wine Battle: Merlot around the World
This new concept of “Grape Tour” will give us the opportunity to focus on a specific grape and taste it from wines produced all around the world. How can it be influenced by a type of climate, a soil, a specific wine making ? You might love some Merlot and hate others..
Wines will be tasted blind. Using specific rubrics, participants will judge each wine based on a variety of criteria – nose, acidity, bite..- then, after choosing his favorite wine, each participant will have to justify the choice made. YOU become the wine expert !
