On November 18 we held our monthly joint tasting with the ACB. Held at the private Prince Albert Club in Brussels, sommelier Rupert Wittebols guided us to try many wines from across the lesser-known wine regions in France (Loire, Gascogne, Lubéron and Madiron) and we made several very lovely new discoveries of wines we had not had before!
After each wine we had a discussion around the aromas in the wines, good food pairing combinations and also a guess at the prices of the wines – we have some sharp buyers! In addition to many interesting facts like how to tell if a wine has gone bad, Rupert also had a few surprises for us – tasting the same wine twice which tasted like different wines because one glass was decanted and the other not.

Our next wine tasting on December 15th is the "Battle of the Bubbles" which will be a fun and tasty evening. It is already sold out but you can request to be put on the waiting list by emailing the ACB at: firstname.lastname@example.org
