Noval's table wines...a teaser

Spent the morning with Christian Seely and a bunch of journalists tasting Quinta do Noval's new Douro wines, along with several other 2004s from the AXA portfolio. Full write up to come, hopefully later today, but first a rather nice picture of the tasting. Usual rules: 1 point for each taster you can name. The Noval table wines are rather good.

Well done. Just two more to get. One almost impossible, the other a bit easier.

THose cuffs wouldn't be the always immaculately attired Christian would they?

Jeremy, you are right. It's Christian. I didn't think the cuffs would be enough of a clue, so there's still one person to get.

Gareth, you are, of course, correct.

I have no idea, but the glasses look quite bad... How could they organise such a tasting and use such poor glasses? Things like this are beyond me...

Yep, the glasses weren't very good. I was surprised: so many tastings these days have got the message and use the Riedel Chianti glass.
