WINE AROMA KITS
By Le Nez Du Vin
THE SCENT OF SUCCESS
- Develop a “scent memory” to more easily identify specific aromas in wine
- Become a more confident taster by properly training your sense of smell
- Enhance your entire experience with wine
If you’re struggling to tease out the individual aromas of wine, you’re not alone. In fact, most of us have forgotten how to recognize smells.
A human’s sense of smell is so acute, our brains have learned to ignore familiar scents to avoid sensory overload. So without the visual cue of a green apple or blackberry, it can be extremely difficult to pinpoint the aromas you are smelling and tasting. You see wine, but you may be perceiving lemon, pear, truffle or pepper.
Le Nez du Vin wine aroma kits give context to what you are smelling, giving you a language for what you are smelling and tasting.
