[Tasted during WSET Diploma class – Section 2 – Week 4]
Unfortunately the bottle was corked! A big shame since it’s always nice to retry wines that were previously had in the past, especially with more tools under the tasting belt. Among other things, I’m pretty bad at detecting TCA unless it’s it’s a purple elephant in the glass – I was pretty sure with this one but at the same time I was doubting it. Huzzah – corked. I knew something was up.
