Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Thick with masses of wood varnish, baked and dried fruits, toffee apple and nutmeg given some lift by lemon peel.
Palate: Wet flowers, thick. This one does need water which adds to the substance and gives a little tannic grip. Develops into butterscotch and red fruit coulis.
Finish: Honeyed and sweet.
Comment: Balanced and with good energy.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Sherry. Earthy. Wet leaves. Mushrooms. Some mustiness. Old leather saddle. A hint of sulphur. Slowly opens on sweeter notes. Coffee and toffee.
Palate: Sweet and smooth. More toffee. Nice spicy festoon.
Finish: Fresh with liquorice.
Comment: The palate is sweeter than the nose. A pleasant sherry character. Wellbalanced. Oak is well mastered.
