Weine-Winzer-Violinen im Cocoon Club Frankfurt

IMG_1613

Since some years, several German winemakers planted Chardonnay and tried to surf on this internationally popular wave.
These last years also, my father and I tried one German Chardonnay and were very convinced. This made us curious of course if there are more such convincing “Chards” growing here. So we decided to organize some more samples and blind taste them in a nice round. Actually this was our first real blind tasting, honouring the name of this blog: a shame it came that late!
So here’s the plot: we had 5 bottles, Read the rest of this entry »
