Paz Levinson, elected Best Sommelier of America 2015, reveals us her passion for wine and tell us her relationship within the gastronomy field.
Paz tell us: “I think customers feel rewarded when they see a bottle that’s well presented, a bottle that’s elegant, a bottle that matches the contents. What I really like is to see customers looking at us when we’re opening the bottle, when they watch our every movement carefully. What I like about a pure tin capsule is that when you want to cut the capsule, it can be easily cut. It’s not just a matter of appearance; it’s an aid to the sommelier’s work”.
For connoisseurs, the pleasure of tasting a great wine always begins at the moment it is opened. The pleasure and the emotion linked to this ritual are multiplied by the magical effect of the tin capsule.
Having admired its colour, its embossing, its perfect finish, it is the capsule’s incomparable feel that surprises them and allows them to imagine the sensuous pleasure of a great wine or spirit.Connoisseurs take their time when opening a bottle, that moment of promise that heightens the pleasure.
The pliability of the blade as it cuts the top of the capsule with precision enables them to safely remove the cork with style. They enjoy weighing the top of the capsule in their hand and place it in a saucer where it will soon be joined by the cork. Connoisseurs carefully leave the skirt of the capsule on the top of the bottle as a sign of refinement.
Now they go about removing the cork and get filled with the first precious notes to come to them. For producers of wines and spirits, as for consumers, the Pure Tin Capsule represents the ultimate distinction.
