Want to improve your ability to detect aromas from the wine you drink? Is it grapefruit, lemon, lychee, roasted hazelnut, etc.?
You can either buy all those items to smell one time or there’s a better way, an aroma kit. These kits contain little vials which contain a particular aroma and you can use them again and again to train your sense of smell to detect that aroma. They are the ultimate wine education tool.
We have used these types of vials before and they are fantastic! The only problem when we first learned about them is they are not inexpensive. However for Christmas, I received a white wine kit as a surprise. Besides the 12 aroma vials, the kit comes with two beautifully illustrated books covering the Le Nez du Vin instruction method, as well as a detailed description of each aroma, its corresponding molecule, and a listing of wines in which they can be found.
After discussing it, we decided since we are really trying to train our sense of smell with wines, we would splurge and get the much bigger and more expensive kit with more aroma vials.
