La Vieille Ferme – everybody can’t be wrong

  

Did you miss the results of my blind tasting party –  the winner, with 4 out of 7 first place votes, was …

LA VIEILLE FERME C D LUBERON
LCBO 298505 |  Price: $ 11.95

Et en francais …


And the winner is …

 I played a Blind tasting game with my friends Friday night! We all brought  a “bistro red”  that cost around $12. We wrapped them in newspaper, poured them, drank them and voted on them. It was fun but also a little scary as I suspected that everyone else at the table had a better palate than I did – that’s a lot of pressure as the only person there who writes a wine blog.

Seven of us ranked the wines and then cast our votes to find the winner and the results were interesting.
 
Best overall scoreTrapiche Reserve Malbec 2007 LCBO 614651 | $ 11.95
Most first-place votesLa Vieille Ferme (4 out of 7 first place votes) LCBO 298505 | $ 11.95
My personal favorite (and I was alone on this one) – Monte Antico, Toscana Vintages 069377 | $ 14.95  At least Wine Spectator supported me by scoring it a 90 even if nobody else loved it. 
Other notes of interest – The top two wines scored well ahead of the other four.   Also,  four of the six wines recieved a first place vote!
