Cotes du Rhone-Villages 2009: panel tasting resullts
Wednesday 22 February 2012
On paper it looked like a dream tasting: the much-hyped 2009 vintage and good value-wines from the named Cotes du Rhone-Villages. In reality it was a little lacklustre, however six wines triumphed for the Decanter judges including one five-star and five four-star wines. See them here...
You may have heard of a new wine gadget selling for just under US$300 called 'Coravin' which claims to allow wine to be tasted multiple times from the same bottle without ever removing the cork. Are you...
Intrigued. It sounds like a great idea and I would be interested in buying one (1263 vote, 29%)
Cautious, I would have to see it in action before I made my mind up (1239 vote, 28%)
Sceptical, I wouldn't risk it with my old and rare vintages (687 vote, 16%)
Not interested - if I want a glass of wine I'll just open the bottle (1179 vote, 27%)
