Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Masses of sweet oak: cocoa, hot butter, taffy, chocolate ganash and some light cherry notes. Some cereal alongside polished oak and nuts.
Palate: Excellent layering effect. Flows across the palate: creamy and smooth, hot gorse and very chewy.
Finish: Red and black fruits.
Comment: There's masses of oak here, but it has real sweet-hearted charm.
8.0
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Elegant, mouthwatering. Praline ice cream. Turkish delight. A hint of exotic fruit. Mango. Spicy carrot cake.
Palate: Rich, fruity at start. A certain austerity. Oak is more present than on the nose.
Finish: Fades away slowly. Retains a delicate fruitiness.
Comment: Quite a complex character for its age. The palate is well-structured, just a little too woodframed.
