Good isn’t good enough
“If you use ‘good’ to describe anything other than the fact you like a wine, I will whack you.” Evan Goldstein launches into a broad American smile. Only kidding. Goldstein is an educator of sommeliers with the international group, the Court of Master Sommeliers (CMS). It is his job to ensure sommeliers seeking the CMS qualifications are judged using the same criteria. Therefore, the kind of words we might generally use to convey a colourful or emotive impression of a wine, often involving the word ”good” are expressly forbidden, writes Jeni Port in The Age.
