Decanter followed up its article on 'Age & your palate' (March 2015) with a letter in its APRIL issue on the medical evidence supporting tongue cleaning (and wine appreciation)
Sounds like a very compelling argument ... (this chap seems to know what he's talking about ;)
As we are fond of reminding wine drinkers (of a certain age);
Old Vines might improve with age (and indeed old Wines) - but our taste buds certainly don't ...
So, using an effective tongue cleanser can help reverse the gradual decline in our taste sensitivity - and thus enhance our wine appreciation
(and thank you Decanter Managing Editor, Amy Wislocki, for being such a tongue cleaning advocate)
