French term (gourmet) for a connoisseur in terms of food and drink (wine); a sommelier acts as a consultant in this regard in more sophisticated restaurants. A gourmand is someone who eats or drinks in excess (but does not necessarily have the same expertise as the gourmet).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
