REEVALUATE THE THREE WINES

Now that you know which wine is which, you can learn more about them by carefully repeating the Four S tasting process.

  1. Line up the three wines in order by price, with the popular brand on the left, the Cru Bourgeois in the middle and the Growth on the right.
  2. First, re-evaluate the wines from left to right.
  3. Then re-evaluate the wines from right to left.

 

 
REVIEW
