Alexandre Schmitt, known as the “Nose of Bordeaux,” can precisely identify the aromas of more than 1,500 compounds. As one of the world’s foremost olfactory experts, he travels the globe training winemakers, sommeliers and other industry professionals in how to pinpoint the aromas found in wine.
We enlisted Alexandre to apply his considerable skills in a blind sensory analysis comparing natural corks processed with SARA ADVANCED technology to those without.
INNOVATION: Proprietary state-of-the-art technology improves natural cork quality
NEUTRALITY: Sensory performance of wines is remarkably enhanced, with far fewer off-aromas and flavors
METHOD: Innovative process uses pressurized steam to volatilize and extract TCA and other unwanted compounds
