On virginity


Amongst fellow imbibers, one thing that slightly grates me is the judgement, “Oh, but it’s only slightly corked.” No it isn’t. As in life, you can’t almost be a virgin, you either are, or you aren’t. It’s either corked or it isn’t.

But then last night, a third of the way through a bottle of 2015 Nunzio Chianti Classico, note well, a third of the way down, I was forced to state it was corked. There was nothing on the nose, just at the back of the finish. Against my usual principles, I soldiered on, perhaps with a benevolent wish to a status of only slightly corked.

What became clear though, was not that the bottle was corked, I finally decided it wasn’t.

It just wasn’t very good
