Nose : fine, dense.

Coffee has joined the dark chocolate, whilst cardamom, coriander and Turkish delight add a touch of the Orient. On the retronasal olfaction, rose petals and red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) invite us to begin the tasting again. In unison, the empty glass reveals porcini mushroom and corinthian raisin.
