Introduction to GeoSensorial Tasting
Join WSG founder Julien Camus for a live, interactive tutored tasting of two terroir-driven wines from Alsace.
You will also have the chance to discover WSG's brand new Tasting Lab® and initiate yourself to GeoSensorial Tasting using our tactile tasting grid. This grid focuses on a wine’s mouthfeel, texture and shape and how these elements might relate to the wine’s terroir signature.
The following two wines will be tasted during the WSG Live session:
-Domaine Marcel Deiss Grasberg 2016
-Domaine Marcel Deiss Engelgarten 2018
Presenter: Julien Camus
Julien worked as Trade Attaché for wines and spirits at the French Embassy in Washington DC from 2004 to 2006. In this role, he recognized the need for French wine education as a means to spur consumer demand and interest in his country’s wines.
To that end, in 2005 he founded the Wine Scholar Guild, an organization dedicated to the promotion of French wine and culture through education.
After leaving the embassy, he devoted his energies to developing the Wine Scholar Guild and its network of program providers around the globe. Julien holds a Masters's Degree in Business Administration with a major in International Marketing from the Strasbourg Management School.
In 2019, Julien was one of the "Future 50" award winners, an award created by WSET and IWSC to acknowledge professionals under 40 who have made a significant contribution to the industry. Since 2021, Julien has been teaching tasting as part of the University of Strasbourg’s degree in GeoSensorial Tasting.
