Book 4 Wine 756

£33.93; 12%

Welcome to the Book 4 index. Book 4 stretched over 3 years, from early-2011 to January 2014, covering much of the ‘between studies period’ in my wine learning. Having finished the WSET Diploma in 2009, the last few entries just overlap into the start of studying for MW, which I began in October 2013. Indeed, the final entry of an excellent 1995 vintage Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese was encountered at the last night dinner of my MW first year students’ seminar in Rust, Austria.

Some lovely highlights among the 192 wines (well, one is a beer and one a Folle Blanche Armagnac) listed below, including some great labels. Ironically, entry 756 is for Jacquesson’s Cuvée 736, pictured above (which should probably be my house Champagne on name alone):
