When your are about to discover the aromas of a wine, open your eyes!!
The brain structures are a lot mot interconnected than what we can think. We have clear this interconnection between the senses of taste and smell, as it is proven that when the smell fails, the taste is significantly affected by it.
Although you might think that by closing the eyes you get a greater concentration when exploring the aromas of a wine, studies reveal that our sense of smell during the aspiration process is improved if we maintain our eyes open, as this activate the visual cortex of our brain, allowing us to a better perception of every sensation.
So, if you were closing your eyes when tasting a wine, from now on ... change you habit and keep them wide open so you will not miss anything.
