Les Yeux du Vin - The Wino Hedonist Returns
J. Addison of the Wino Hedonist here. I know it has been a while since you’ve heard from me but I just finished settling the last pesky lawsuit so better late than never.
If you still haven’t found that perfect gift for the wine enthusiast(s) in your life, I have it for you right here, right now.
You’ve surely heard of Le Nez du Vin, the kit containing samples of aromas most commonly found in wines. I have to say that is an excellent idea and I wish I had thought of it sooner so that my own imitation set (I was going to call it The Nose Knows) didn’t make me wind up in court, but I have something even better for you.
The first thing a truly professional wine taster does is not smell the wine, but instead examines the appearance of the wine. Yes, that is correct, the looky-look comes before the sniffy-sniff. The appearance is just as important as the smell, if not more so since I am not an authorized dealer of Le Nez du Vin nor am I allowed to market a similar product.
I now present for your acclaim, Les Yeux du Vin – “The Eyes of Wine.” In this remarkable collection I have assembled tubes containing samples of the most common colors and appearances of wine that you can compare against the actual wine in the glass to see how accurate you are in your descriptions.
Below are a few of the sample colors you will find in my comprehensive kit (there are 24 total colors each for white and red wines):
Along with the colors are 12 tubes containing the most common appearances that you will find when examining wines. Among these appearances are:
No one else but the Wino Hedonist could produce and offer you such a magnificent collection for your wine enhancement experience. Order by December 19 and I will personally guarantee that it will arrive on time for Christmas.
Each incredible set includes a quality picture book as well, demonstrating which colors are best suited for particular types of wine.
