Before you start the tasting:
1. Fill in the top portion of the Tasting Journal.
2. Pull the corks from your two bottles of wine. Pour each wine into a separate glass, filling each glass about 1/3 full.
3. To remember which glass is which, you might want to place the two glasses side-by-side, keeping the unoaked Chardonnay on the left and the oaked Chardonnay on the right. In each section of the tasting, we’ll evaluate the unoaked wine first and the oaked wine second.
4. Fill in all the sections of your Tasting Journal as you work through the tasting.
