Is wine tasting an art, a talent reserved for a few experts? A code, held by an enlightened elite? No, nothing of the sort. It is about using our senses and is accessible to everyone, because we all know how to taste.
Tasting not only involves taste, but also the senses of smell, touch and sight, as well as our feeling for a wine’s energy, things which are accessible to all wine lovers, whoever they are and wherever they come from.
Here, the practice of wine tasting is explained and developed, from the study of our physical senses to the notion of taste in various cultures. The end of the book is devoted to practical tasks, divided into thirteen sessions that approach the tasting of all types of wine, step-by-step, in the form of clear and simple lessons.
