What is wine oxygenation?

Wine oxygenation is a process in which wine is exposed to oxygen in the air. This can happen in a variety of ways, but most commonly it happens when wine is poured into a glass and oxygen from the air comes into contact with the wine. A device to oxygenate the wine can also be used, it is called a “ wine aerator ” or even a “wine decanter”.

Oxygenation of wine can impact the aromas and flavors of wine. In some cases, oxygenation can improve aromas and flavors, while in other cases it can alter them. For example, some red wines may benefit from oxygenation, as this can soften tannins and improve their taste. However, oxygenation can also cause wine to oxidize, which can lead to loss of flavor and quality.

It is important to note that the oxygenation of wine must be controlled in order to obtain the best results. Too much oxygen can negatively alter the aromas and flavors of the wine, while too little oxygen can prevent the wine from opening up and revealing its full aromas. It is therefore recommended to taste the wine slowly and give it time to oxygenate before drinking it.

How is red wine oxygenated?

Oxygenation of red wine can be done in different ways. Here are some examples :

By aerating the wine before drinking it: you can pour the wine into a glass and let it rest for a few hours before drinking it, which allows the oxygen to mix with the wine and give it more aromatic complexity and roundness in the mouth.

By using a wine aerator: there are devices called "wine aerators" which allow oxygen to be diffused into the wine in a controlled manner when poured into a glass. This can help develop flavors and soften the wine.

Using a wine decanter. These carafes will allow the decantation of red wine , while allowing gradual or rapid aeration depending on the opening of the wine carafe.

By aging the wine in barrels: when the wine is put in barrels to age, it is in contact with the oxygen in the air and this can contribute to its aromatic and taste evolution.

It is important to note that the oxygenation of red wine must be done in moderation, because too much oxygen can alter its organoleptic qualities and cause its oxidation. It is therefore important to find the right balance to obtain the best possible result.


What accessory should you use to oxygenate your wine?

To oxygenate a wine, you can use a wine aerator. This is a wine accessory in the shape of a neck or bottle that allows air to be diffused into the wine when it is poured into a glass. The objective of oxygenation is to improve the aromas and taste of the wine by allowing it to “open up”.

There are several types of wine aerators on the market, ranging from simple models that attach to the neck of the bottle to more sophisticated devices that use a pumping system to diffuse air into the wine. Some wine aerators are also equipped with filters that separate deposits and impurities contained in the wine.

Among the wine oxygenators, you will find:

  • aerators with a pouring spout
  • electric and electronic oxygenators
  • wine carafes
  • wine decanter caps

It is important to note that wine oxygenation is not necessary for all wines and may even be harmful to some. For example, white wines can be oxygenated, but this is not an obligation. This will remove the carbon dioxide that remains in the bottle.

It is also recommended not to aerate old wines, aged more than 10 years. This would cause a loss of flavors and a reduction in fruit aromas.


How long does the oxygenation of a red wine take?

The oxygenation of a red wine can last for different lengths of time depending on several factors, such as the quality and age of the wine, as well as the type of aerator used. In general, the oxygenation of a red wine can last from a few minutes to several hours.

To optimally oxygenate a red wine, it is recommended to pour the wine into a glass and let it sit for about 15 minutes before drinking. This allows the wine to open up and express all its aromas and complexity. If you use a wine aerator, you can also increase the oxygenation time by diffusing air into the wine for a longer period of time.

It is important to note that excessive oxygenation can alter the quality of wine by changing its aromas and giving it a bitter taste. It is therefore recommended not to oxygenate the wine too much and to drink it as soon as possible once it has been opened.
