January Palate Tune Up Session 2: Earthy Notes

January 21, 2017 @ 4:00 PM

Session 2: Saturday January 21st, 4-6pm: Earthy Notes

 $25 per seat

Ahhhhhh- dirt! How many times have we heard a wine described as 'earthy'? How many times have we heard the description used in an unflattering way? Understanding these aromas and the roles they play in classic wines has traditionally been a hurdle for American wine lovers. From the clove, horse-saddle & bacon notes of Rhone wines to the forest-floor fungal complexity of Burgundy, to the sulfurous tang of great Champagne and Sancerre, earthy notes play a fundamental role in the identity of major wine styles- especially in the old world. Again using a few specific molecular compounds as guide posts for our exploration, we will familiarize ourselves with this palate of flavors and their common expression in wine through lecture, sensory-presentation and wine-tasting.
