Tasting notes
Taster   Ian Wisniewski
Nose: Rich crème brûlée and butterscotch lead apricots, citrus and creamy vanilla trifle, with a final dusting of chocolate.
Palate: Creamy crème brûlée with a chocolate fest mid-way, extending with luscious apricots, oranges, grapefruit and lemon zest, culminating in creamy cappuccino.
Finish: Fruity with a chocolate flourish.
Comment: Like a passionate rendez-vous between a chocolatier and a distiller.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Buttery, biscuity. A slight rancid touch. Distant lemon curd. Pears poached in vanilla.
Palate: Mellow for such a strength. Quite rich and creamy. Almond milk, stewed sweet apples. Getting spicier and spicier.
Finish: Spicy, warm and tangy. Sweetened by a pleasant marzipan caress.
Comment: The wine smoothes but it is not there yet. Too young? Not enough finishing? It should have gone back to sleep.
