STUPID WINE DESCRIPTIONS
14 January 2020 13:47
STUPID WINE DESCRIPTIONS

For the last 5 years I have published my list of the most stupid wine descriptions from the past year. The list is a compilation of what I think are the most stupid wine descriptions published by some of the 100 point wine writers. And, hard to believe, but these wine descriptions are written by these 100 point wine writers who are describing actual wines. So take a look and see if you think the description of the wine matches the actual wine or, for that matter, any wine that you have ever tasted. For me, the answer is a resounding NO! Therefore, I believe that these descriptions are prima facie evidence that many wine descriptions do not matter when using a 100 point system. After all, who would buy or drink any wine based on these descriptions? That only leaves the points as the basis for buying. And, sadly, for many people, wine is all about points. But, for the rest of us, we can get some laughs out of some of the descriptions! And we can drink the wines we like and like what we drink (click here to read my article on that subject).

The Meaning of Wine Scores

Wine statistics guru David Morrison wades into the issue of wine scores. Despite their alleged usefulness as a marketing tool, he finds them fundamentally misleading because they falsely imply the score serves some precise mathematical purpose.

CGA & The Buyer Report: What Are The Next Big Things in Wine?

OK before you read any further, it’s time to manage expectations. This report does not tell you what the next Prosecco or Pinot Grigio is going to be. But what it does do is provide the insight and the analysis into understanding the consumer and why wine sales in the on-trade were down a further 6% last year. It also explains in detail the steps needed to make wine less of a daunting drinks category for consumers to navigate and how the answer to reviving wine sales actually comes in how it is promoted, talked about, presented and served.

Demographics and Wine: The Class Divide

Demographics and Wine: The Class Divide

Wine consumption and expenditures are associated with a host of demographic variables including income, age, race/ethnicity, education, gender, family type, etc. Based on a statistical analysis of household level consumer expenditures, all are important determinants of wine spending in the United States. As you might expect, income plays the dominant role. But you might be surprised by the second most important variable – it’s education.

Tim James: Disgust – does it make wine better than sex?

Tim James: Disgust – does it make wine better than sex?

You remember the scene in Sideways, where Miles gets drunk in a winery tasting room, grabs the public spittoon and pours the contents over his open-mouthed self? If you don’t, you can’t have seen the film, and you should. Undoubtedly disgusting – swallowing other people’s spitty swill – but how much more keen would you be to drink from your very own spittoon? Even though all it contains is some of that lovely wine you spat out together with some of the saliva that you’d been unthinkingly content to host in your mouth. Once we’ve passed early childhood and its socialisation process, we tend to think very differently (in most circumstances) about our bodily products once they pass the threshold of our own skin.

Do Women Have Better Wine Tasting Ability? Here’s What the Research Says

We’ve all heard it said a hundred times—women are better at tasting wine than men. But can that possibly be true? For most of my professional wine career I, for one, have been skeptical of the idea. But in honor of International Women’s Month, I thought we should take a look at the current research. The findings may surprise you.

Hammer and cycle

No one, as far as Michael Broadbent knows, has ever died in one of his auctions. But in twenty years at the Christie’s rostrum, just about everything else seems to have happened to him. His first sale was particularly traumatic. ‘I was put into the box at half an hour’s notice’, he remembers, ‘and I was literally sick with nerves. The first five lots were liqueur miniatures lying in bond. And there is nothing harder to sell than liqueurs lying in bond.

Wine and Beauty

Wine and Beauty

In discourse about wine, we do not have a term that both denotes the highest quality level and indicates what that quality is that such wines possess. We often call wines “great”. But “great” refers to impact, not to the intrinsic qualities of the wine. Great wines are great because they are prestigious or highly successful—Screaming Eagle, Sassicaia, Chateau Margaux, Penfolds Grange, etc. They are made great by their celebrity, but the term doesn’t tell us what quality or qualities a wine itself exhibits in virtue of which it deserves greatness.

How well do you know the common European wine-making regions?

There has been much talk over the years of an over-supply of wine in Europe, which has recently been exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. However, it is perhaps less well-known that the European Union has been steadily reducing its vineyard area since 2007.

A high-tech puppet in the vineyard

In tomorrow’s world, four masts fixed on removable bases could divide your vineyard plots into squares. At the top, winches would wind and unwind cables that would move a platform to which you would attach your mechanical weeding, hoeing or spraying tools. You could call it a kind of high-tech puppet.
