Talking about Tasting: the language of wine

  • Terence Moore

Abstract

Much of our everyday talk about food and drink is actually about likes and dislikes, sometimes as a kind of running commentary to a meal: ‘Don’t think much of this wine, do you? Tastes like vinegar’. ‘How’s your steak? Very nice. Yes, very nice and tender’. If we are guests politeness may make our ‘commentary’ somewhat less than frank.
