Color: old gold
Nose: fine, flowery. Very spicy (pepper, nutmeg), the first nose is also floral (buttercup, dandelion, lily). When aired, it becomes exotic (banana) and empyreumatic (beeswax). Then, the scents of Boulbènes sands which emanate from the aromatic palette highlight a notion of ancient terroir. Essential oils (rosemary, chamomile, savory) gradually cover the olfactory space.
Palate: fine, balanced. Very different from the nose, the attack on the palate is creamy (vanilla, coffee) and candied (lemon, pear). On the mid-palate, flavors of pistil, daisy and marigold echo the floral character of the aromatic palette. Then, more and more fruity (pineapple, plum, banana) and honey (acacia, lime), the aftertaste also highlights the quality of a perfectly integrated oak.
Overall: long, racy. Grated dark chocolate ginger, candied lemon in vanilla and salted butter caramel with hints of prune, the start of the finish is both delicate and peppery, almost spicy (Espelette). In retro-olfaction, notes of leather and incense highlight the beautiful chiaroscuro tones of the taste palette. The empty glass is powdery (cocoa), spicy (ginger) and floral (honeysuckle).
