Enjoying wine and a cigar together can be a perfect combination, for which, as with the topic of "which wine with which food", there are a few rules. The taste of the cigar also influences the taste of the wine. The temperature also plays an important role; wine that is too cold usually makes the cigar seem very acidic. Some wine journals take this topic into account editorially, such as Falstaff and Wine Spectator. There are also renowned wine critics, such as James Suckling, who not only evaluate and describe the quality of wines, but also of cigars.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
