Hi – looking to confirm the latest version of the deductive tasting grid for the certified exam.
#1: Link from CMS website https://www.mastersommeliers.org/resources references a grid from Jan 2017: https://www.mastersommeliers.org/sites/default/files/Certified_Examination_Tasting_Grid_White_Wine-Jan2017_0.pdf
#2: A Google search however found a grid in a different format dated March 2017: https://www.mastersommeliers.org/sites/default/files/ES%20Tast-Deductive%20Tasting%20Format%20March%202017.pdf
Is the Jan 2017 grid the official one since that's what's referenced on the cms website?
The first link is the one you will see during your certified exam for white wines, here is the link for red: https://www.mastersommeliers.org/sites/default/files/Certified_Examination_Tasting_Grid_Red_Wine-Jan2017_0.pdf , the second you will need to learn for Advanced and Master level examination. The website address you really want where you will always find the latest resources is: https://www.mastersommeliers.org/resources
