And then, without anyone really knowing when or how, a mysterious word burst into the nicely organised lexicon, a hazy sort of term without boundaries that no one, until now, has been able to define: minerality.
This affair is the cause of much commotion in the small world of nologists and wine lovers. Since the 1970's, wine tasters from around the world have thought that agreement was reached regarding a common language: to each his own perception, but a shared vocabulary for all.

Damien Leclerc, managing director of la Chablisienne and our guide in this quest for minerality, takes us deeper into the descriptive metaphors. His words to describe this notion are "those first big raindrops that fall and dry just before a storm on a hot, dry day" beautifully expressing the concept of minerality. There is a sudden refreshing sensation that invades the atmosphere, while at the same time there is tension in the air. A sort of energy, like before an earth tremor.
