Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense.Polished old furniture.Dried fruit.Sultanas soaked in a cinnamon syrup. Treacle. Rich Christmassy sweetness. Old sherry. Opens on afresher note of mint chocolate.
Palate: Sweet at first then revealing a crisp fruity sourness.Sherry in a velvet glove... Oak is elegantly integrated.
Finish: Big,long,drying on spices.
Comment: The charming old-fashioned touch of an confectionary shop lined with oak panels. Rich, elegant. Takes you back to your childhood Christmases.

Palate: Those sweet and funky notes play off each other.Concentrated berry fruits then comes out orange bitters.
Finish: Drying oak.
Comment: All darkened nightclubs and secret assignations in Mulholland Drive.
