Dave Broom

75
Nose
Big and sweet with lots of childhood aromas: rosehip syrup, travel sweets, stewed rhubarb, ginger snaps filled with cream and strawberry jam. High tea in a glass.
Palate
Very thick and mouthfilling, mixing oak, red fruit coulis. Juicy and fat. Best neat, though water brings out a light leafy quality.
Finish
Sweet chestnut.
Comment
A plump fruity number.

Martine Nouet

75
Nose
Tangy, slightly spirity. Very fruity. Tangerine juice, grapefruit (the pulp not the peel), plum jam. Gives a fresh feel. A touch of nougat. Opens on cappuccino. Touch of leather.
Palate
Smooth and sweet at first then abruptly shifts to hot spices (tabasco). A touch of cocoa bean.
Finish
Dry and warm.
Comment
Quite a punchy lad. Water calms it but that colourful fruit basket loses its brightness.
