I’m known as a super-taster and one of the world’s best. What advice would I give to someone wanting to develop their palate?
RICHARD JUHLIN ‘The most important thing is to get a large fragrance bank by smelling objects and experiences in everyday life. If you have built up a sufficiently large bank of fragrance memories, the ability to secrete different tones in the wines you try is automatically increased. In addition to this basic training, concentrated tasting with full focus on each clue a wine conveys the key to an improved tasting result. If you use my 7-step tasting ladder, you will probably have a better structure to achieve linked results.’
