Oh, the Minerality!

Listen to people talk about wine and sooner than later someone will
say a wine has “minerality.” Your natural reaction might be “WTF?” Does
wine contain minerals? Yes. Can you taste them? No. But can you really
taste the chalk soils of Champagne or the limestone of Chablis? Well,
probably not. But you don’t have to taste the vineyard to taste the
effect its soil has on the wine.

Whether you can taste minerality or not, you can read about it in my debut wine column in The Washington Post, published October 1st. Here’s a link to it on the Post’s Web site, or read it on my own.
