We hope you enjoy Wine Science Part I, with Tom Mansell. d d d Wine Science, Part II, will be posted next week. Lynn Hi Tom, Never having taken a class in chemistry, I’ve been struggling to understand all the chemistry involved in wine sensory evaluation as I am currently taking a class in this. I have read articles and attended lectures, but no one has so succinctly and thoroughly explained the science of wine aromas as you. I had no idea that there were good smelling sulphur compounds – particularly the tropical fruits. Never would have put those two together. Looking forward to the other 3 parts of your series, the sooner the better!
