Most useless tasting note I've ever seen...

Ummm, Chardonnay. Right there in the note gramps.


Ummm, more likely the leafy green chard, whippersnapper :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Interesting paywall :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

First time posting in this thread but had to with this one today…popped up in recent reviews of my cellar–2017 Hyde De Villaine Pinot Noir Ysabel.

I always report that type of note with the “report issue” feature. Reason is, it isn’t a tasting note. Eric’s team removes or, more appropriately, moves it to the personal note field so the public doesn’t see such dribble. :slight_smile:


Same and they are very responsive.

Saw this one today:

Tasted by XXXXX on 1/8/2021: Into a decanter at 1:30. (660 views) - report issue | favorite author

Didn’t even bother to say what time dinner was.

That “report issue” button is there just screaming to be clicked.

With the power of a thousand suns.

Well, I guess it’s useful if you know what brucellosis tastes like.

I wonder if the person writing the note is an infectious disease specialist

Noticed at least two other notes mentioning brucellosis. Maybe it’s a new fad?


Oh God, please say it ain’t so! :smile:

Also love that a wine that drinks like brucellosis gets 93 points in his book.

Another wine was a classic brucellosis, one was Rooney, Syrahs and powerful brucellosis.


Remember when we had some huge argument on here about someone using hantavirus as a descriptor in a tasting note?

Wow! What was the wine - Carlo Rossi?

Probably cream sherry… I had an interesting fellow come in a few times for sherry for turtle soup.

I wonder if this was a copy/paste from another location and the keyboard language didn’t support the paste.

If I had to guess, I’d guess it was the aggressively stupid Apple spellchecker at work.
