The art of wine tastingWine-tasting in 3 steps
The art of wine-tasting is to use 3 of your senses: sight, smell and taste. Firstly, admire the colour of the wine with the violet, ruby, garnet red or brown hints. The more the wine sticks to the sides of the glass, the rounder the wine. Secondly, try to detect the scents of the wine. Finally, it's time to taste whether it is a strong wine or not, and to unearth the flavours and tannin within!
Even more so than the tasting, I love meeting the wine-makers who talk about their trade with such passion.
