• A Champagne Cork Trial with Cédric Moussé

    During a recent tasting with Cédric Moussé, he poured a trio of wines for me, serving them blind and explaining to me that it was a “triangular” tasting: that is, three glasses containing two different wines, with two glasses being identical. The object was to see if the third glass was really all that different.

    To my credit, I spotted the “different” wine right away. It wasn’t a question of one being obviously better than the other, but in two of the glasses the wine was deeper in tone, with a darker, rounder feel on the palate, while in the third glass it was more flowery and high-toned, and a little purer and more precise in flavor, making the other feel slightly blurred in comparison.
