Today’s episode of the podcast is a Rosé tasting for Diploma students with Anne McHale MW. 

En route to becoming an MW, Anne collected three awards for outstanding achievement, covering both the theory and tasting components. Calibrate your palate with Anne’s as she assesses the 2019 Provence rosé from Le Grand Cros at WSET Level 4. Fear not, if you can’t get this exact rosé you can still taste along with any young Provence rosé. Anne gives exam tips specific to rosé, covering bottle ageing and identifying Old World vs. New World rosé. Before broadening out into general advice for Diploma exams, and discussing her Diplomatherapy online coaching service. Simply a must listen if you or anyone you know is sitting unit D3 this October.
