Colour : Orangey copper.
Nose : Fresh, accomplished. On the first nose, notes of bitter orange and candied apricot are covered in a fine layer of dark chocolate. Gradually, prune, date, leather, wax and beeswax fragrances underscore the aroma palette’s profound maturity. Increasingly extroverted, exotic (mango, guava, rancio) and heady (tuberose, lime blossom), this first stage of the tasting is particularly evocative of the Domaine des Forges cellars.
Palate : Full-bodied, intense. The impressively smooth and fresh attack takes on the fruity notes (orange, apricot) from the first nose. On the mid-palate, a new fruit appears—peach—and its grainy texture softly envelops the taste buds. The end of the palate develops increasingly autumnal tones (sweet chestnut, chestnut, infused bay leaf).
Finish : Long, silky. The exotic start of the finish (mango, guava) leaves to conquer medicinal (arnica, gauze) and camphoric lands. At the end of the finish, clay and limestone notes showcase Petite Champagne’s stunning terroir. The retro-nasal olfaction is a subtle mix of wax, apricot, orange and toffee. The empty glass is empyreumatic (anthracite), mineral and spicy (candied ginger).
