How to Taste French Wine
For you to taste wine you don’t have to be an expert. Wine tasting involves a few simple steps such as:
You pour the wine in a glass, swirl it around because the longer the wine clings to the glass’ side, the higher the alcohol content gets
Then take a short and sharp sniff which gives you a clear indication of the wine’s intensity
You can then take a short sip, then suck in a little air so that the flavours of the wine might get powered up
Close your eyes and concentrate on the taste of the wine; try and notice the difference between the taste at the back of the tongue and that on the tip
For professionals, they spit the wine into a bucket that is provided but you can swallow it after tasting
