Whether a wine has "leg" or "thigh", no one is unaware, but whether it has "chew", whether it "renarde", "terroite" or is "empyreumatic". .. A sensual wine language is revealed in this dictionary of tasting words. From the 13th century to today, going from "clairet" to "body-built", here is a journey through terroirs, fashions and eras. The wine calls the verb.

It encourages people to share the emotion it provides, and to comment on it. The whole art of the taster, professional or simple amateur, is to know how to bring the mouth that tastes and the mouth that speaks into harmony.

The author:

Linguist at the CNRS, specialist in the history of French vocabulary, Martine Coutier has devoted herself for several years to the study of wine tasting terms.
