A little more spicy. Hint of toasty reduction. Elegant, incense spice, a hint of peony or rose. Lifted aromas, bright cherry, redcurrant and cassis fruit, showing concentrationand finesse – fine and very well defined. A very faint musk note. Lip-smacking freshness and ‘calcaire de St-Romain’ minerality.
