The Oddbins Take

Nobody thought Pierre could actually tell which grapes had gone into any given wine just by using his nose. But that is what he boasted. Down to the very vine the grapes that made it came from.


To throw him off the scent, sceptical colleagues mixed together crisp, grassy Sauvignon and citrussy Semillon and presented Pierre with two buckets, challenging him to tell them which was which. After a few sniffs, Pierre looked at them contemptuously and said with a Gallic shrug: 'Ha! You crossed the buckets!' They drank the mixture anyway. The blend was so delicious they continue to make it today, using only Pierre's nose to finalise the exact percentage of each batch.
