27 500. C’est le nombre d’occurrences à la minéralité que Cees Van Casteren, journaliste international du vin, a trouvé en épluchant 258 000 notes de dégustation du « Wine Spectator », célèbre revue américaine spécialisée dans le vin.
OK, it's all in French, but Google does a good job of translating this article.
Can you describe minerality?
It seems that "minerality" is all the rage. It's mentioned in 10% of all Wine Spectator and Decanter' tasting notes. That's more than "woody", "fruit" or "floral", yet nobody quite seems to be able to describe it.
I've done experiments getting people to put pebbles in their mouth and then taste Chablis. It's fun watching their Marlon Brando impressions and seems to help, but it's still difficult to describe.
So, how about you. Can you describe minerality??
