Palate Calibration Exercise 2017

The Palate Calibration Exercise 2017 has now closed for entries. We will be publishing the results very soon

Back in 2001 visitors to wine-pages.com took part in the first ‘Palate Calibration Exercise’. Each person purchased the same wine, tasted it, and rated it using specific criteria. The idea was to calibrate our palates: we would gather the ratings and tasting notes from each participant, compare them, and discover how our assessment of a wine’s quality compared to others’ assessment. The findings were published on wine-pages with some basic statistical analysis to determine averages and so on.

The ‘PCE’ became something of a fixture, but has not been run since 2007. Ten years on seems the perfect time to try the experiment once again…
