A well-known legend in the wine world has a venerable trader asked when he last confused a Bordeaux with a Burgundy. He replies, "Not since lunchtime." Adored by some, hated by others, the often ignominious art of blind tasting - that is, the attempt to identify a wine without seeing the label - is brought to light in the new issue of Noble Rot.
In this number:
King of interviewers Louis Theroux and queen of disco Róisín Murphy. We find ourselves dancing to the tune of Theroux's swaying hips as Murphy talks to John Niven, uncle of Noble Rot's agony, about his love of food at a pre-gig dinner.

Introducing Yellow Wine from Jura, Denavolo from Emilia-Romagna, Cretan Wine and Barbacàn, Instagram's dance sensations unleashed on the dizzying slopes of Valtellina.
