When it comes to wine the female palate is more discriminating than the male

Righto you male wine chauvinists. Stick this in your glass and choke on it. Researchers at Spain's Madrid University reckon they have proved that women make better wine tasters than men.
The study published in the journal Food Quality and Preference found that, while men have a stronger emotional reaction to wines than women, the female palate is more discerning.
Researchers asked 208 volunteers to take part in blind taste tests of six wines: two whites, one rosé and three reds. Dr Caroline Chaya, of the Technical University of Madrid, who led the study, concluded: “In general, men reported higher scores on significant emotions for all the wines. Although women gave generally lower ratings than men, they reported greater differences between the wines.”
