Definizione

Comparative tasting […] is a tasting “method” that allows one to savor, compare and contrast a selection of wines of the same variety and vintage side by side.1

Nota

A comparative tasting showcases the differences in wines from one grouping; usually either from the same part of the world or of the same grape variety. Tasting wines side-by-side makes their differences easier to detect. For example, the dark purple hue of a Merlot will be obvious when compared to a ruby red Pinot Noir; the floral notes of a Gewurztraminer shine compared to a crisp, clean Sauvignon Blanc.2

Contesto

[…]The result: my first ever comparative tasting.3
