Color: deep old gold
Nose: fine, racy. On the first nose, aromas of barley being malted, toast and toasted nuts invade the ambient atmosphere. When aired, the nose becomes more spicy (cloves, pepper) and even more pastry (gingerbread, porridge). Gradually, exotic fruits (bananas, pineapples) and heather honey take possession of the premises.
Palate: clean, lively. Marked by notes of chocolate with hazelnuts, peanuts and nutmeg, the attack on the palate evolves into elegant autumnal tones (chestnut, chestnut). In the mid-palate, balsamic flavors (cough candy, thuja) alongside powdered spices (curry, turmeric, ginger). The influence of the barrel of yellow wine is felt at this precise moment. The aftertaste is freshly herbaceous (barley field) and saline.
Overall: long, delicious. The start of the final is an invitation to taste different pastries (Paris-Brest, chocolate éclairs, hazelnut cake). The very end of the palate oscillates between the same exotic fruits as on the nose and dried fruits (date, fig). Verdant (cut hay), vinous (bunch of Savagnin), the retro-olfaction reveals a beautiful liquor that is both tangy (lemon, grapefruit) and vanilla. The empty glass evokes the scents of cereals escaping from a vat in full fermentation.
