Legs (or Tears)

Legs (or Tears)

Swirl a glass of wine, and then watch how thin streams of liquid slowly make their way down the side of the glass. Those are called ‘legs’ or ‘tears’. The more pronounced and slow-moving they are, the higher the alcohol and/or sugar are in the wine. Thus, you’d expect to see serious legs on a Châteauneuf-du-Pape, while you might not spot any on a glass of Muscadet.
