EmpyreumatiC – Grand Cru
Our 2014 vintage keeps its promises of originality by being the ideal companion of predominantly Umami-based dishes (the 5th flavor: the hyper gluttony and the flavorsome taste).
Racy, powerful, spicy, with toasted aromas, we name it as it is: EmpyreumatiC.
Let yourself be transported into its world and marvel at its many facets.

Golden hue with subtle amber reflections. Nice dynamic bubble train.
First nose is very expressive with notes of mocha, hazelnut, grilled almonds, and blond tobacco. At the opening, notes of menthol and cedar are revealed.
Aery, with aromas of passion fruit, almond cream enhanced by subtle vanilla notes. The fresh finish offers a nice length on the lemongrass.
