Tastevin

Tasting Bowl Tastevin Traditional wine tasting bowl, which is mostly made of silver, but also made of glass or porcelain. Documented evidence is a use already from the 14th century. The goblets have a diameter between 6.5 to 10 centimeters, oblique sidewalls and a slightly curved upwards floor. They have different sized, small bowl-shaped depressions and elevations on the inside, which reflect the light used in the test candlelight and even in a dusky cellar, the test of clarity and the colour to allow a wine. There are versions with and without handle. For a wine tasting regarding all criteria like odor or taste but they are not suitable and are not used by professional degustators. Sometimes still wear sommeliers Tastevins on a chain around the neck, but have no practical use and are to be understood only as a "professional license plate". From the Burgundian wine brotherhood Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin At the annual awards, the best wines are awarded "Tasteviné". See also below wine review and wine address,
