Sip and Saliva

Sip and Saliva

(p.15) Chapter One Sip and Saliva

Gordon M. Shepherd

Columbia University Press

When taking the first sip, the key questions for neuroenology are, first, how does the wine stimulate the taste and mouth-feel systems in the mouth, and second, how does it give rise to volatiles that dominate the wine taste through retronasal smell. The mechanics of the sip and functions of the saliva are described.
