Connoisseur Definitions

A connoisseur (French traditional, pre-1835, spelling of connaisseur, from Middle-French connoistre, then connaître meaning 'to be acquainted with' or 'to know somebody/something') is a person who has a great deal of knowledge about the fine arts; who is a keen appreciator of cuisines, fine wines, and other gourmet products; or who is an expert judge in matters of taste. In many areas, the term now has an air of pretension, and may be used in a partly ironic sense.
An expert judge in matters of taste
A connoisseur of music
A person with expert knowledge or training, especially in the fine arts.
A person of informed and discriminating taste
A connoisseur of fine wines.
A specialist in a given field whose opinion is highly valued, especially in one of the fine arts or in matters of taste.
One well versed in any subject; a skillful or knowing person; a critical judge of any art, particulary of one of the fine arts.
The connoisseur is "one who knows," as opposed to the dilettant, who only "thinks he knows."
