The author : Jean Lenoir

Jean Lenoir: does he need any introduction? Born in Burgundy, his boundless enthusiasm, his accent and his work are a reflection of his identity.
In 1978 he pioneered wine's début into the world of culture as a work of art thereby putting it on an equal footing with the fine arts. In 1981, as a result of his research into vocabulary to describe wine, he created Le Nez du Vin®, a unique and learned combination of written works and aromas that was an immediate success. Its originality astonished experts and amateurs alike.

Jean Lenoir fashioned the Nez du Vin
He is acknowledged for his know-how, based on experience and a constant focus on quality. His scent kit has conquered the world!

Learn how to form your own opinion of the wines you drink
The scent memory is the cornerstone of wine tasting. Practise regularly and come back to the aromas you could not identify the day before. Turn it into a game. Choose an aroma at random, smell it and concentrate hard (don't refer to the key yet). Try to categorize it, put a name to it, then check. After a few weeks, you will have no problem pinpointing, recognising and naming the 54 aromas. It doesn't matter whether you use it with family and friends as a game or as an educational tool, once you start using it, you'll progress very quickly.

Learn how to desribe the taste of a wine yourself
To begin, choose a wine that is fairly characteristic and easily identifiable such as a Sauvignon or a Gewurztraminer... You'll dicover the smell of blackcurrant bud in the former and lychee in the latter; in fact, you'll be surprised how many other scents you will recognize. Now compare what you have discovered with the aromas in the collection, then compare that aroma with other, similar ones. For instance when you try strawberry, smell the raspberry too, then blackberry and bilberry, then rose and lychee etc... Wine tasting will no longer seem such a highbrow procedure.
Your sense of smell with be more finely tuned and you will acquire the essential abilities for appreciating, evaluating and commenting on the wines you taste.

The sense of smell


The sense of smell is the sharpest of our senses
To date,there is no more sensitive detector than the human nose, there is no more sensitive detector than the human nose. No scientific apparatus has the same amazing abilities!
Actually, the taster uses both his nose and his mouth to smell because all the elements that are perceived via the nose (the smell of wine in the glass) and via the retro-nasal passage (its aroma on the palate) combine and complement one another...

Smelling the wine is the most important part of the wine tasting process and it provides 80% of the enjoyment (remember you won't be able to taste anything at all if you have a cold).
