OS Corkscrew Remote Tasting!

1 June 2020

On Friday 29 May, the OS Corkscrew Club held its first remote tasting, kindly hosted by Jack Scott (Lyttelton 80). We gathered 17 Old Stoics and their families for a raucous evening, sampling the delights of two wines selected by Jack and purchased in advance by our guests.

Jack provided instructions on the temperatures for wines, which gave everyone a giggle and challenge to rise to in advance. Jack spoke about the merits of a Pouilly-Fuiss√© 'Les Grands Climats', Domaine de la Chapelle, Burgundy, France 2018 and Bellvale Quercus Pinot Noir, Gippsland, Australia 2016. These were just two of the wonderful wines included in a case of 6 curated by Jack especially for our tasting, kindly supplied by Jack’s former company, Jascots. The other wines included in the case were just as special, but the finest by far was a Brunello di Montalcino, Villa Le Prata, Tuscany, Italy 2011, which received a commendation from Jack!

Guests tuned into the tasting from all over the country, joining us from their armchairs or gardens, with whole families taking part. For format worked superbly well and we hope to continue with a series of remote tastings until normal events are back up and running again.

Full details of the next remote tasting will be announced soon.
