Just for fun: let's think about the time of absolute monarchies, especially that of Maria Theresa of Austria, the Mother-in-Law of Europe. A climactic time, the parenthesis which hosted events and stories of all kinds… though certainly one full hope for a future which might have been better.

The lingua franca is French, the official language of European courts from Saint Petersburg to Naples.

It is a reflection on a time like this which encourages us to be better, to seek what there is above good or evil, above black and white. Passions are a nightmare, let us escape them! Let us find refuge in a search for balance as at the time of Enlightenment, as in the century of Maria Theresa. Let's make a healthy obsession out of this search. The golden thread to reach Harmony, our Inspirational Muse.

Here we will find a dance of opposites: elegant and austere, fresh and mature, savoury and sweet, lovable and hateful. Fatally we know that there will soon be no more, both in the glass and in the bottle.

A slow evolution in the glass which delivers a rainbow of tones and sensations of dried prune, tamarind, baked caramelised pear, leather, sultanas, evolved notes of vanilla, and as we progress many other fragrances follow with a long aromatic persistence. Enveloping to the mouth, of noteworthy fineness and elegance. A perfect consistency between nose and palate. In a class of its own and of the rarest quality.

“Appreciation is a wonderful thing; causes this

which is excellent in others belongs to us too.”
