The challenge of how we might best describe wine aromas and flavours continues to fascinate wine students and enthusiasts alike: this is your chance to question both a wine-writing veteran and one of the most talented of the new generation of wine critics about their work in this field  The scoring of wines is now universally practised and the use of scores as a sale aid is ubiquitous.  Is this a good thing -- or does it impoverish wine culture?  Can we trust scores?  Is there score inflation at work, and if so how can we re-set scores to optimise their usefulness?  More broadly, can we trust wine journalists and wine critics to work ethically?

Take a look at the debate again and share your questions and thoughts. In order to make the most of the live debate, you can leave a comment below or DM on the Great Debate post on Instagram or Facebook with your question or comment at before the live debate.

There also will be plenty of chances to post your opinions or questions on the day of the live debate via the chat box.

Get involved and Have your Say -- Andrew and William are looking forward to hearing from you!
