Nose
Dry. Slightly vegetal. A hint of lime peel.
Palate
Oily. Cinnamon. Dusty.
Finish
Spicy. Aromatic. Slightly medicinal. Menthol.
Comment
A confusion of flavours that don't seem to have rounded in the cask

Martine Nouet

Nose
Fruit by the sea … A distinct veil of smokiness subtly hovering over a full basket of fruit (melon, grapefruit, apricot) and toasted almonds.
Palate
Oily and silky. Sweet, mellow, candied quinces and orange. Dried seaweed. Drying, smoky notes.
Finish
Warm, spicy with a touch of hot pepper and curry. Caramelised almonds.
Comment
Sauternes adds fruity mellowness without obstructing the splendid sea influence. A real beauty.
