Bruno Baillarguet explaining about all the different grapes and the way they are used in French wines.

Explanation of techniques about the wine and knowing which kind of wine you're dealing with even before the tasting part

Lightly swirl the wine so you can smell the bouquet better. It took some practise since they all had to hold the wine glass at the stem.

And by wine-tasting you don't gobble up the wine.. You spit it out. This part was probably the most difficult for Patrick. He almost missed the bucket...

And a pricture to prove that even Chris did what he had to do. Although i'm sure he drank some wine too...
