There are no issues with reduction here as the overtly spicy nose features cool and ultra-pure notes of essence of red currant, violets and a touch of plum, all of which is trimmed is subtle hints of sandalwood. The intense, muscular and large-scaled flavors exude a fine bead of minerality and while there is ample power and punch this is a Richebourg of relative refinement. Note that though this is quite firmly structured it is the epitome of what I like to describe as power without weight.
