There is quite the controversy brewing over how professionals rate the wine that they drink? The National Post recently published an article entitled “Vintage snobbery: Are wine critics fooling us into buying pricier bottles?“
Which brings me to my own wine rating systems which reduce wine snobbery and elitism to a minimum.
- “Mmm, yum” get used most often in my house closely followed by the
- “do we have another bottle of this?” method.
- I have also endorsed the coliseum method – Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down
- And finally I have sadly used the “Plonk” rating for wines that deserve a quick death
Any rating system more complicated than these are really superfluous aren’t they?
