Art of tasting

Owning great wines in your cellar is not enough, you also need to know how to serve them.

Température is an essential element, around 53-57° F for the white and 55-59°F for the red. And if you don't have the right tasting glass which will amplify the wines's aromas, you may considerably reduce your tasting pleasure.

A great glass gives a large ventilation surface to the wine and a tightening neck, which allow the nose to grasp more easily the richness and the complexity of a great wine.
