JMIB Tasting Reports

The core of this website is the vast and growing library of Jasper Morris’s ‘Tasting Reports’. Each has a theme – a vintage, a vineyard, a producer (see below). New ‘Tasting Reports’ are published regularly: subscribers are notified. The ‘Tasting Reports’ contribute a steady flow of new tasting notes to the Wine Database. For more, see “An introduction to Tasting Reports”.

JMIB Tasting Notes

All wines are given both a point score and a star rating: A full explanation can be found by clicking on “An Introduction to Tasting Notes” below.
