Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Discrete and restrained. Light fruit and flowers. Marshmallow. Turkish delight. Orange drop. A touch of barley sugar. All aromas aredimmed,likeawashdrawing.On time delivers spices.
Palate: Smooth with a broader expression than on the nose. Quite spicy. Gingerand wasabi.
Finish: Dry but soothing with fresh almond notes.
