Dream Taste – a new cure for corked wine

>> Tuesday, June 07, 2005

A Burgundian company (Embag with Gérard Michel and Laurent Villaume) has developed a cure for wines with cork taint. You pour the wine into a decanter and put a small plastic grape bunch in it. The grape bunch contains a substance that absorbs the TCA (2,4,6-trichloroanisole) that gives the wine it off taste. Each treatment will cost around 5€; a starting kit is 40€. We have not yet tested it…

Hi,

I did try the dream taste kit.

I had a nice bottle of Gevrey chambertin 1er Cru, with a cork taste.
I used the kit, very simple to use, and after an 60, 75 minutes, the wine was fine and you were not able to feel the cork taste that there was before ..

Really, you can buy one, it's working well ...

I was wondering where you were able to purchase your dream-taste? I have been looking and have not found anyone that sells them. I would apriciate if you could get back to me quickly. Thank you.

We have not actually tried it, unfortunately.

But I did actually see it in a shop last week, the Athenaeum wine book shop in Beaune.

You can find them at the bottom of this page:

(They also have an online shop.)
