Appearance : topaz with green tints.
Nose : refined, complex. The very pleasantly salty first nose is also tinged with exoticism (banana), lemon, herbaceous notes and chili. In a word, coastal. Allowed to breathe, it develops notes of frangipane, coconut milk and fresh walnut. Later, plant infusions (sage, verbena, camomile) arrive at the perfect moment to refresh the aromatic palette, which resembles a grand cru Alsatian Riesling.
Palate : lively yet creamy. Herbaceous (hay, alfalfa), slightly camphoric and milky (fromage blanc), the attack has lots of zest. On the mid-palate, a fine layer of green liquorice covers grains of malted barley. A few yellow fruits (plum, pear) then spread a deliciously sweet juice over the taste buds. At the end of the palate, flavours of liquorice sweets highlight a stunning minerality (schist).
Overall : long, silky. Very lush (prairie) and aromatic (tarragon, bay leaf), the start of the finish is also characterized by the presence of citrus fruit zest (grapefruit, lemon). Spring-like, it lingers with flavours of chlorophyll, wildflower (dandelion) and green bean. On the retro-nasal olfaction, a few notes of burnt wood and a handful of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) create a strong backbone for the flavour palette. In unison, the empty glass is mentholated, maritime (sea spray), fruity (Williams pear) and floral (tuberose).
