Finding the meaning of great wine

Aug 13 2015


What does it take to understand wine? To some people the very idea will seem absurd: we can understand a play or a painting, but with wines we achieve all there is to know just by tasting them. Wine experts, they will say, may know a lot about a particular wine, its producer, the grape varieties involved, the vineyard it came from, but all of this is additional knowledge that tells us nothing about what it tastes like. This is a popular but, I think, mistaken view. What one tastes depends on how one tastes.
