placenta... pethidine.

remolino, petidina

El personaje se encuentra en una reunión de médicos (muy probablemente obstetras) que hablan un lenguaje incomprensible y se mezclan con las sensaciones del Pinot Noir.
La petidina es un analgésico, te mando dos sitios donde la puedes encontrar:{36D1}&softpage=Document42&x=22&y=4
Pethidine is indicated for the relief of pain. It is particularly useful for the relief of post-operative pain. It may be used in obstetric practice to relieve labour pain.

La frase quedaría algo así como "Suze había probado su Pinot Noir y sonreía al vacío, atrapada en el remolino de un dialecto extraño. Epidural... tanino... nariz (se dice del aroma que se desprende de un mosto o vino, EURODICAUTOM) de zarzamora... placenta... petidina".

Mucha Suerte. GFS
