  • Regular price $95.00

Appearance: Pale gold yellow in colour with light green sheen - brilliant bright and clear - a young honest appearance

A rich majestic nose

All is rich ripe and powerful, whether it is fruity or floral. 

Density, depth and balanced graceful "majestic nature" are established from the outset. Honey, vanilla, lemon brioche, etc., follow each other as in a daydream, all orchestrated through a new woody tone.

Opening it makes it welcoming and tender with crisp plants revealing aniseed, menthol, liquorice and spices.

A gluttonous, rich and virile nose.

The effect is extensive, lively and gluttonous, ideally balanced between being highly well rounded and agreeably crisp. Smoothly rounded it gives full measure in establishing liquorice, aniseed, lime and vanilla, pepper and Muscat. The long spicy and woody finish is carved in flint.

All is rich in this virile whole: structure, substance, aromas, minerals

When older, it should accentuate its buttered, grilled and vanilla coated hints favouring a better place for the mineral.
