Pungent petrol, mineral, earth, coffee grounds, and medicinal aromas characterize a complex nose. The full-bore palate suggests wet stone and other earthy, mineral elements but it also has a powerful truffle component. Overall, rich and expansive, growing in intensity in the glass, gradually offering up more truffles, dark fruit, baking spices, and licorice. Great complexity and fruit concentration. A richly elegant, sumptuous wine suggestive of power and glamour, but managing to seem refined at the same time.
Food pairing: Meats in truffle sauce; duck in pepper sauce
