Appearance follow up

To help out with the colour descriptions mentioned in recent posts on the appearance of white and red wines I searched for a visual colour guide online.

I couldn’t find a decent free one unfortunately. You could try this one from Riedel (with a grain of salt).

If you want to shell out for a proper one, you could try here or here. This one (bottom of page) looks really good, though I can’t find where to buy it from.

    You can find that last chart available for sale at Bouchard Aine et Fils’ website for a mere 10 Euros (they’re listed as the patent holder, so I just looked up their website and there it was):

    Seems like they also do a nose one too.
