The Wine Taster Special Edition
“Louis-Philippe de Cabernet Sauvignon delicately placed the point of the corkscrew exactly at
the center of the cork of the 1990 Bordeaux. Even if all the emotion made his wrist tremble,
he slowly removed the cork and the characteristic pop of an uncorked bottle resonated
against the walls of the wine cellar. He examined its appearance and while smelling it a
slight smile illuminated his face. He slowly poured the precious liquid into a crystal glass
which he raised a little to appreciate the clear and brilliant contents, an intense cherry red
color with hints of ruby, and touches of sober red-browns.
He approached the glass to his nose, closed his eyes and smelled the explosion of chocolate
aroma, truffles, aromatic woods, leather, all which were incredibly elegant, an expression
of an infinite varietal. He brought the precious liquid to his lips, sipped and ….realized he
had forgotten to rinse the glass.
Traces of dishwashing powder which were on the glass gave the wine a slight taste of a
hand soap with an aroma of deodorant and a bouquet of detergents, all perfectly balanced
with grand complexity and harmony.”
