Synthèse points to an article describing a study that suggests that music can influence the way wine tastes. For instance, subjects in the study listening to heavy rock music rated a cabernet sauvignon as being 60 per cent more powerful and heavy than those who drank in silence.

Some wine/music recommendations:
  • CABERNET SAUVIGNON: All Along the Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix; Honky-Tonk Woman by The Rolling Stones; Live and Let Die by Paul McCartney; Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who.
  • CHARDONNAY: Atomic by Blondie; Rock DJ by Robbie Williams; What's Love Got to do With It by Tina Turner; Spinning Around by Kylie Minogue.
  • SHIRAZ: Puccini's Nessun Dorma as sung by Luciano Pavarotti; Orinoco Flow by Enya; Chariots of Fire by Vangelis; Canon by Johann Pachelbel.
