Tasting Notes

: Pale gold.

Nose : Refined, distinguished. On the first nose, an herbaceous, salty and empyreumatic peat clearly dominates. When allowed to breathe, the fruits, flowers, and mint make their way, all of which brings momentum to the aroma palette. Gradually, it becomes increasingly milky, tropical, and medicinal.

Palate : Firm, robust. Giving its own take on the herbaceous, salty and empyreumatic register of the nose, the attack evokes a field of barley swept with sea spray. The more earthy and rooted mid-palate pours blocks of peat onto the tongue. The end is floral and fruity.

Finish : Compelling length. Unexpectedly, the finish first invites us to bite joyfully into whole bunches of white grapes. Flavors of plum and pulp bring smoothness. On the retro-nasal olfaction, evoking an evanescent peat, a fine layer of liquorice delicately coats the tastebuds.
