CAT Verbal Preparation – Lessons you can learn from Novak Djokovic

August 8th, 2018 by

Imagine that you are a tennis player – let’s say a club-level player. You have been taking tennis lessons regularly. As a result, you have acquired some skills. You have a good first serve that (may not be like Roger Federer’s, but still) can reach about 100 mph. You also have a reliable second serve with enough kick. You can generate a nice topspin (although not of 3000 rpm as Rafael Nadal’s) on your forehand, and your backhand (usually a weakness of most players, unless you are a Stan Wawrinka) is good enough to keep the ball in play till you can pull the trigger.

The eponymous Puligny-Montrachet has a bright golden color, with greenish highlight. Its bouquet tells of hawthorn blossoms, hazelnut, marzipan, green apples, with the aromas of honey and flint. It intensifies with age and is considered to be the perfect expression of the chardonnay grape. As any oenophile worth their grape would attest, no other white that comes out of green is as elegant and angelic as Puligny-M
