Mind you... One of my own shelf descriptions does say "Probably the most fabulous thing you will put in your mouth all year". (Ben Ryé, Passito di Pantelleria - £32 for 37.5cl if you're interested) I may change it to "Bitter clown's tears" but I only have 2 left.
I was very interested right up until the £32 for 37.5cl bit. Only the little people pay for it...
As for "Chemical shite" - with you all the way.
One of my better tasting notes was "Smells of despair" although a colleague came up with "Tastes like the 1970s". I should clarify that it was more Airfix glue and Spangles than Operation Yewtree.
Now, where did I leave that cheeky little Auslese....
Trade name drop alert: I was with Daniel Brunier tasting his Vieux Telegraph in Chateauneuf-du-Pape last month. We agreed that the fruit note was of strawberry but not the ones at the top of the punnet, it was the one at the bottom which is squashy and has gone slightly brown. Pretentious, moi?
