Description

The book has been completely rewritten based on the most recent discoveries in history, forestry or chemistry that make it possible to better explain and ma how the oak barrel influences the sensory quality of the wine. From the species of oak to the winemaker's choices, it describes all the parameters that vary the intensity and quality of the woody character.
Léa Desportes, wine writer and tasting trainer, is the author of the texts and supervised this reissue.
Philippe Darriet, Director of the Oenology Research Unit at the Institut des Sciences de la Vigne et du Vin de Bordeaux, signe the preface.

This 56-page text, illustrated and educational, is complemented by a notebook that describes the making and the words of the barrel (4 pages).

Unlike concrete and stainless steel, which are "mute" in terms of aroma, wood modifies the bouquet of the wine. In this box, you will discover twelve of the most representative notes of woodiness in wines:

1 oak, 2 green wood (default), 3 coconut, 4 vanilla pod, 5 woody-spicy, 6 cloves, 7 smoky notes, 8 pharmaceutical notes, 9 fresh leather, 10 roasted coffee, 11 cooked sugar, 12 candied oranges.

New in this new edition, each bottle is accompanied by a large cardboard card (16 x 23 cm) that tells the origin of the note in the wine.

Finally, the box is adorned with a new green covering, bright and contemporary.

An essential complement to the 54 aromas : all great wines and spirits pass through an oak barrel. An essential tool for professionals (winemakers, coopers, oenologists, sommeliers, etc.) and amateurs who want to "go further".

"In this book The oak barrel, which accompanies the box of 54 aromas of the Le Nez du Vin collection created by Jean Lenoir, Léa Desportes has invested herself with talent. It faithfully describes the stages that give rise to the barrel, sheds light on the expertise of the coopers, on the delicate choices of the winemaker wishing to improve his wine by passing through barrels. It is a stimulating invitation to discover and deepen through reading what wood reveals about wine, before experiencing it through the senses."

Philippe Darriet, Director of the Oenology Research Unit at the Institut des Sciences de la Vigne et du Vin de Bordeaux.

"We all have images – oenologists, journalists, sommeliers, professionals in the profession – because smells are first and foremost memories, to designate what we smell. The "wet" wood, a scent, a defect of course, that evokes grandmothers' washboard. (...) The box LENOIR a kind of reference point or repertoire, fragrances linked to the contribution of the barrel. (...) A remarkable accompanying booklet, where everything is said about the history, the production, the contribution of the oak barrel. »
