ABOUT DECANTER TASTE WITH THE EXPERTS
Decanter Taste with the Experts is designed to inspire, educate and entertain through monthly tastings of a different theme.
Hosted by a Decanter tasting expert, you will learn how to score wines with the Decanter Guarantee.
All wines are initially tasted blind while the Decanter expert then talks through how to score a wine during a simulated Panel Tasting. The wines are then revealed and further discussed.
Tastings are held in the controlled environment of Decanter’s Tasting Suite: a quiet, purposely designed room, with plenty of 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
