Appearance : greenish gold.
Nose : rich, concentrated. The first nose reproduces a stunning note of sugar cane with rare astuteness. It is golden and releases still warm sugar. Allowed to breathe, on the edge of the aromatic palette we find citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit), pine resin, coconut milk, candied ginger and numerous exotic fruits (banana, pineapple, passion fruit). Gradually it becomes floral (jasmine, iris).
Palate : lively, passionate. On the attack, the same warm cane sugar very gently coats the taste buds almost indelibly. Next, fresh fruits (pear, apple, white peach) replace the exotic fruits, bringing lots of classicism to the mid-palate. With time, soft spices (cinnamon, curry) appear alongside intense dark chocolate, toffee and other more empyreumatic notes (lime blossom, pine).
Overall : long, delicate. With all the languor required, the finish weaves slowly through fields of sugar cane and flowering geraniums. Although heady, it is also constantly refreshed by absolutely delicious herbal flavours (green tea, sage). The retro-nasal olfaction prioritizes sugar cane, spices (cumin, star anise) and aquatic plants (rush, reed). The empty glass is then slightly medicinal (ointment), camphoric and marvellously floral (white lily, iris).
