I recently read the expression
“Pinot Noir wants to be loved; Gamay wants to fuck”(Noble Rot Issue 12).
But what makes wine human?
Wine is a complex product. ‘Terroir driven wines’ reflect their origin, the climate and soil of their appellation and even their specific vineyard site. Varietal character and vintage variation are expressed. Moreover, the personal hand signature of the winemaker makes the product alive. All these factors contribute to the personality of each handcrafted wine (But watch out, you won’t find terroir typicity or personal traits in industrial wines).
