Do you know studies proving the link between soil composition and wine minerality ?

1 month ago

The widely cited direct, literal connection between vineyard geology and wine taste seems scientifically impossible according to some research ( https://gsa.confex.com/gsa/2009AM/finalprogram/abstract_161039.htm ) Whatever “minerality” in wine is, it is not the taste of vineyard minerals... But if you know other studies proving this effect, I would be very interested. Best, Jules
