Swallow, Aroma Burst, and Finish

Swallow, Aroma Burst, and Finish

(p.48) Chapter Five Swallow, Aroma Burst, and Finish

Gordon M. Shepherd

Columbia University Press

Swallowing is a complex act, crucial to the wine tasting experience. We describe the swallowing muscles, controlled by the swallowing central pattern generator. We describe the steps in swallowing, from mouth to throat to esophagus. After swallowing come two essential stages in wine tasting: the aroma burst from the wine coating the throat, and the “finish” - how long the taste remains.

Keywords:   hyoid bone, epiglottis, soft palate, swallowing central pattern generator, aroma burst, finish
