A dataset about hedonic valence of descriptive sensory terms used to characterize red wines.
This dataset includes all the data used to establish and test a dictionary of valenced descriptive sensory terms used to characterize red wines. It is stored as an XLSX file including five tabs. Tab "Subjects": informations about the consumers. Tab "Valence": consumers' scores (on a 5-point Likert scale) for their expected liking for red wines presenting specific sensory attributes. Tab "Dataset A" includes Free-Comment (FC) tasting descriptions and liking data from 106 French consumers for four red PDO (protected denomination of origin) wines: two Bordeaux (W1 and W2) and two Rioja (W3 and W4). Tab "Dataset B" includes FC tasting descriptions and liking data from 60 consumers for four different red wines: one Bordeaux (Bor), one Beaujolais (Gam), one Languedoc (Lan) and one Val de Loire (Val). Tab "Dataset C" includes check-all-that-apply tasting descriptions and liking data collected from 60 consumers (different from dataset B) on the same products.
