Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Restrained at first,does not unveil immediately.Delicate,elegant. Opens slowly like a rose on a coldsummer morning.Creamy citrus fruit. So complex,so intriguing.
Palate: Satin. Mellow. Yogurt and cereal bar with dried cherries. Almond milk. White chocolate.
Finish: Langourous,lingering and fully satisfying.
Comment: Give it an hour and it will still be unveiling more. Time is the ultimateluxury.This dram too.
