Appearance : orangey copper with glints of green.
Nose : fine, full-bodied. On the initial nose, magnificent notes of bitter orange are enveloped in dark chocolate. This splendidly classic start is also composed of red and black fruits (bramble, strawberry) and noble spices (cardamom, ginger, cinnamon). Allowed to breathe, it develops precious wood (beeswax), vanilla and leather notes. Dried fruit (date, fig) then bring even more complexity to the aromatic palette.
Palate : lively, distinguished. On the attack, oranges release their sweet and tangy juices. Very taut, it then reveals notes of salted butter caramel, exotic fruit (guava, persimmon) and crème brûlée. Unveiling gianduja, the mid-palate is also a close reflection of the malted barley. At the end of the palate, strawberry and bramble create a particularly delicious and full-bodied about-turn of flavours.
Overall : long, balanced. A change of scene. Heady florals (iris, lilac, pale lilac, purple lilac, peony) appear, filling the air with their perfumes in a finish that also stands out for its delicate texture. On the retronasal olfaction, chocolate and salted butter caramel accompany notes of toast and aromatic plants (chervil, bay leaf). The original empty glass focuses on wood that has been reduced to powder, allowing cocoa bean and very ripe banana to take their places.
