One Year Blind Tasting Results
Coravin inventor and founder Greg Lambrecht recently visited Paris for the one year anniversary of the first blind taste conducted in France. One year previously, he had made the same trip to host a Coravin wine tasting. He invited some of France’s top sommelier and wine makers to attend, where they accessed and tasted six wines (three red, three white) – all bottles signed and dated by attendees. When they reconvened last month, they were poured ten glasses (five red, five white) from two of those bottles, and asked to identify which glasses came from the bottles accessed one year previously, and which were from the new "control" bottles. All of the guests were blown away when they realized that they could not determine with complete confidence which glasses were from which bottles!
