While they’ve had a very decent website for a while (screenshot above), the renowned French wine guide, “Guide Hachette des Vins” has been dragged into the 21st century with the launch of their keenly priced iPhone app.
The app offers tips on choosing the right wine with 700 ratings among the last 65 vintages and a complete description of each wine with its colour and aroma, grape variety, ageing potential and optimal serving temperature.
It also has a maps of the wine growing regions in France and a dictionary with 230 definitions.
At €0.99 it’s worth a look-see and that’s exactly what I’ll be doing when I get myself an iPhone.
