Burgundy wine and girl power

Nothing to do with wine, but this photo of a girls night out, Dijon style, just had to be aired

Vive la difference! In bucolic Burgundy they have come to their senses and realised that women taste wine differently to men. Often women can detect different aromas, subtlety and nuance in wine that, as a general rule, men, even professional winetasters, do not.

Also the wine itself can be feminine or masculine. Feminine wine in Burgundy at least tends to be more delicate and fragrant and masculine wine denser and heavier (although generally Burgundy wine is not particularly heavy or “fat” – but that’s a whole other blog).

If you travel through Burgundy tasting as you go, or just check out some tasting notes online, they often describe wine as having feminine or masculine characteristics.

Whatever country the wine you are drinking comes from, I feel wine does have a personality and feminine or masculine is all part of that character. It makes sense!

What do you reckon?
