“Know better to better appreciate” is the keystone of Taste of Wine. This work was written with all those interested in quality wine in mind and who wonder about the mysteries of its taste and the meaning of the act of drinking. This book benefits from all the weight of oenological knowledge but also from the contribution of the experience of men of wine. The first edition, in 1980, was an event. Thirty years later, this new edition, while respecting the initial spirit of the work, takes into account what we know today about the mechanisms of perception of tastes and odors, encompassing current types of consumption and the types of wines available, in France and around the world.

Continuing a collaboration with Émile Peynaud begun in 1960 and deepened through numerous publications, Jacques Blouin brings his practical experience of oenology, tasting, and the organization of international competitions acquired in all the vineyards of Bordeaux and the whole world.

A true reference work, this book helps everyone to better understand today's wines, to know better in order to savor better, for their greatest pleasure.

The author:

World-renowned oenologist and renowned taster, Émile Peynaud is considered, along with Jean Ribéreau-Gayon, as one of the fathers of modern oenology. A brilliant scientist, teacher and unparalleled popularizer, he was the advisor to numerous Bordeaux grands crus and wine estates throughout the world.
