Michael Broadbent on music and wine tasting

“What perhaps is needed is something approaching musical notation, for in many ways the problems are similar.

Both music and wine appeal to the senses; both are fleeting, in the sense that actual sounds and flavours cannot be retained by receptive ear or palate; both, on the other hand can be appreciated, even greatly loved, by those who lack technical knowledge or who are without a deep interest. But to reach the heights of full understanding and to convey this to others, rather more is required.”
