Bouquet

Aromas acquired during bottle aging. Also called tertiary aromas or tertiary notes, these derive from oxidation and other chemical reactions that take place over time. Classic notes of bottle bouquet include nut, honey, and sherry in white wines, and potpourri, tea, and balsamic in red wines.
