Decanter Taste with the Experts is designed to educate and entertain through monthly tastings of a different wine. Hosted by a tasting expert, you will learn how to score wines with the Decanter Guarantee.
All wines are tasted blind and the Decanter Expert will then talk through how to score a wine during a simulated panel tasting and attendees taste each wine blind before the wines are revealed and discussed.
The tastings are held in the controlled environment of Decanter’s tasting suite: a quiet, purposely designed room, with natural light.
Tasters rate the wines using the 100-point scoring system. The overall Decanter rating is the average of all three judges’ scores.
The ratings are as follows:
A great, exceptional and profound wine
An excellent wine of great complexity and character
90-94: Highly Recommended
A very accomplished wine, with impressive complexity
A well-made, straightforward and enjoyable wine
An acceptable, simple wine with limited personality
Correctly made, if unexciting
Unbalanced and/or bland with no character
Displays winemaking faults
