Nose : Ample, elegant. A balsamic fruit of sherry vinegar floats on the surface of the aromatic palette which consists of rhubarb, candied oranges and prune. It evolves gently on red fruits (redcurrants). Then noble spices (cardamom, clove) chisel its contours. Powdery, it continues on cocoa and salted butter caramel.
Palate : Haughty, superior. Its saltiness sweats until the attack where bitter oranges dominate. The middle of the mouth is very slightly smoked and herbaceous (pipe tobacco). Essential oils (savory, rosemary) have the same effect on the taste buds as an ointment. In the wake, dried fruits (date, fig) and new ripe fruits appear: reine-claudes, kiwis and mangoes.
Finish : Long. Its granulated and velvety touch gives it a lot of body and lightness. Its crimson tones range from golden yellow to burnt sienna earth, passing through all shades of ocher and brown. The retro-olfaction is extremely exotic (flamed banana, passion fruits, very ripe mango). The empty glass is intensely floral (gladiolus, honeysuckle) and oriental (sandalwood, rosewood).
