Appearance : Burnished gold with glints of copper.
Nose : Fresh and rich. The deliciously honeyed (lime blossom) initial nose is also vanilla and fruity (apricot, white grape). Allowed to breathe, a fine layer of dried fruit (almond, walnut) brings out the quality of its wood. The oxidative aromatic palette develops notes of earth and saffron. Next, tertiary aromas of candied fruit (orange, pear) gradually appear.
Palate : Lively, distinguished. The very exotic (guava, persimmon) attack is also syrupy (rock candy). Empyreumatic (cedar, pine), little by little it becomes nobly spicy (cardamom) and refreshingly herbaceous (mint tea). The very unctuous mid-palate is then vanilla, roasted (coffee) and fruity (plum, Mirabelle plum). The end of the palate is floral (lilac, rose petal).
Finish : Long, well-balanced. With the same fresh expression, the finish takes us to a forest to collect ceps and sweet chestnuts. This time, cardamom brings out the noble mouthfeel. The retronasal olfaction is divinely fragrant (lime blossom, verbena). The empty glass is characterised by notes of grape blossom. Much later, bourbon vanilla envelops the taste buds in an unctuous and slightly tannic coating.
