Nota

Empyreumatic is an important word to describe a whole family of wine flavors:
Toasted: crisp bread
Roasted: cocoa, coffee, moka
Smoked: smoke, ash, tobacco, BBQ
Burnt: wood, rubber, tar, soot
these smoky flavors are a sign that the wine was aged in wood barrels.
The barrels are burnt before the wine is placed in. This burning preparation really influences the taste of the wine and demands a real expertise from the cooper.
