First and foremost, it’s about aroma. Lingonberry, wild blackberry, blackthorn – yes the entire array of dark berried fruit merges together and yet each is still clearly recognizable. Earthy and smoky, its fragrance gains depth with notes of Russian bread, beetroot and juniper berries. Its subtly beguiling, precise fragrance rests within itself and radiates tranquillity. Sensitive, delicate and soft, the St. Laurent hops across the palate before it takes flight like a paraglider that is suddenly lifted with the thermals of 2017. Its open, friendly nature makes it a reliably enriching accompaniment at the table.
