Le Nez du Vin Oak 12 Aromas
One of the trickiest aspects of wine tasting for any budding sommelier is identifying the different oak notes that can be found in a wine and then discerning from those notes how oak was utilised in the winery and what type of oak was used and then marrying that information to the permitted uses of oaks, trends and fashions around the world to help identify the wine.
Oak barrels impart complex aromas on all types of wine from all over the world and is an essential tool in the winemakers kit to help craft the wine to his/her vision.
