About Le Nez du Vin
When tasting a wine, we learn to use three of our senses, the sight to appreciate the dress, the smell and finally the taste. If the sight seems easy to use and the taste obviously requires some experience, the smell uses the olfactory memory and it can be awakened or exercised. Le Nez du Vin (The Nose of Wine) is the ultimate tool to train and develop your sense of smell, creating a common language to help describe and understand wine.
Jean Lenoir is born in Burgundy and a pioneer when it comes to the world of wine aromas. In 1981 he released the first version of his aroma kit which is better known as Le Nez du Vin. He started releasing more and more aroma kits for wine, coffee and Armagnac.
