Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Perfumy. Floral and fruity. Rose syrup, wine gums (blackcurrant). Marzipan in the back. Entrancing. Evokes the tender world of a candy shop. Then more of oak. Polished old floor.
Palate: Lively but smooth. Velvety, lusciously flowing. More oak than fruit but all is well integrated. A pleasant spicy tickle at mid-palate.
Finish: Drying, spicy, nutty. Lingering.
Comment: A charming old lady with her pockets full of candies. Who can resist?
Taster   Ian Wisniewski
Nose: Rich and composed, toffee, apricot, cherries, underlying hints of vanilla and chocolate.
Palate: Creamy créme caramel is soon overlain by a rich fruit sauce with cherries, prunes and apricots, followed by orange marmalade, lightly spicy oak and malty notes emerging.
Finish: Fruit recedes while chocolate, caramel maltiness opens up.
Comment: A medley of fruit conveniently assembled in a glass rather than a bowl.
