Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense. Sunny country fragrances. Dry hay, wild flowers. Sunflower honey. Then apple blossom and ripe apples. A touch of new leather.
Palate: Oak grip. Silky texture. Fruit is released at midpalate with a burst of spice. A mix of pears, peach, ginger cooked in a vanilla syrup.
Finish: Sherbety, dry and lingering. Slightly dusty.
Comment: A colourful character, lively and dancing on nose and palate.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Splintery attack. Fresh wood, a walk in a warm summer forest. Marzipan, wet raffia, green grass/blackcurrant leaf.
Palate: Off-dry and perfumed with good length. Melon balls and gentle soft fruit. Then the grassiness returns.
Finish: Dry.
Comment: Another lighter one which only gets going in the middle of the mouth.
