Connoisseur Wine Masterclasses – Evaluating the Bouquet




After assessing the appearance of the wine it is necessary to evaluate the aroma or bouquet of the wine. By swirling the wine in the glass and breathing the aroma in deeply through your nose (which contains an olfactory bulb) you can get some initial impressions. Some wines have a very explicit, rich and complex bouquet whilst others are more subtle and difficult to detect aTo release the bouquet it is necessary to swirl the wine in the glass, thus making the wine come into the contact with the air. The less obvious the aroma spectrum and intensity of the wine, the stronger the wine should be swirled, thus combining the singularity of the bouquet with the air and maximising ones sensory perceptions.
