Contents of Master Kit:
Each aroma vial comes with an illustrated explanatory card that includes an abbreviated description of the aroma. The Le Nez du Vin Instructional Book explains why the taste of wine depends on its aromas and teaches three different methods of initiation:
1. From the vineyards to the aromas
2. From grape varieties to aromas
3. From aromas to wine
The book precisely details each aroma, why it occurs in wine, its corresponding molecule, as well as, an extensive listing of the regions and specific wines in which it is found.
