Le Nez du Vin is a tool for all, specialists and beginners, used to practice the art of smelling and recognizing the different aromas in wine. Through the set, you can train and enrich your olfactory memory, better analyze the wines you taste and obviously refine your tastes as well.

I first discovered the set while living in Bordeaux, world capital of wine, at a friend’s apartment, the oenologist Fernando. I was new in town so he was helping me discover the city’s wine culture (I was taking a wine course at the time, at l’Ecole du Vin de Bordeaux).
