Are you looking for a full-bodied Christmas party game with fun fruity notes? Then Bacchanales could be the title for you.

Players are challenged to identify over 40 different aromas to become the perfect wine 'nose'.

It's product description reads: "Bacchanales is a wine tasting kit which permits the wine amateur to discover the grape variety he is tasting, to discern the producing region, the vintage and even to learn the impressive vocabulary of the oenologist, just like a true professional.

"The identification of the aromas in the wines helps, using a set of tables, to identify the grape variety, then the region or the appellation. In addition, certain aromas will reveal the wine making method used and even its age."

Unsurprisingly, Bacchanales (translated as ‘drunken* revel’, by the way) originates from France. It's distributed in the UK by Imagerisense. Contact cendrine@imagerisense.com for further information.

*Game is actually non-alcoholic
