Colour : Topaz.
Nose : Deep yet ethereal. The very finely herbaceous (lime blossom, flowering lucerne) and yet sunny (sunflower, sugar cane field) first nose is incredibly delicate. Allowed to breathe, empyreumatic notes (sleet, diesel) and fragrances of macerated fruits transcend the changing aroma palette. Gradually, strong spices (clove, nutmeg, black pepper) and camphor appear alongside heady florals (iris, lily) and essential oils (savoury, thyme).
Palate : Rich, full-bodied. Pairing together perfectly, flavours of warm cane sugar, peach coulis and roasted pineapple bring the attack lots of energy. Citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit), coconut and vanilla pod then refresh the palate. The end of the palate is slightly tarry.
Finish : Long, heady. The liquorice, chocolate, vegetal (tobacco), ashy and salty start of the finish confirms the flavour palette’s empyreumatic (rubber) and mineral (schist) development. The end of the palate is floral (geranium), exotic (banana) and fibrous (gentian, ginseng). The retro-nasal olfaction and empty glass reveal fragrances of dried flowers, very ripe mango and toffee.
