Glad you asked… That’s what BottleCru is all about.
A wine style is a specific version of a wine varietal or classic blend which has certain aroma, taste and structural characteristics which are consistent from wine to wine in that style. For example, there are three classical styles of Chardonnay. (We call them Big, Cool, and Racy Styles!) Their acidity, aromas, taste profiles and weight on the palate can be quite different. Classic examples of theses styles are: Oaky Napa Chardonnay, a Burgundy White and a French Chablis. Not only do they smell, taste and feel differently on the palate, they pair with foods in dramatically different ways and age differently.
At BottleCru.com, we help you identify which wine’s styles you prefer and recommend specific wines in those styles! We only use professional sommeliers to review (curate) the wines and determine their styles. One of our reviewers is renowned Master Sommelier Tim Gaiser.
It’s all done using unbiased reviews from professional sommeliers, not advertising. We don’t sell wines or take any payments for recommending wines.
