Martine Nouet

Nose
Perfumy. Bakery shop. Gingerbread. Crème brûlée. Caramelised pecan nuts. Dried apricots. Wet leaves. Hint of mushrooms.
Palate
Mellow and sweet. Beautiful balance between oak and fruit. Creamy.
Finish
Drying out on spices. Oak gives more length without any show off.
Comment
A superbly balanced giant. More on the sweet side than the spicy one. Should marry so well with my pecan pie! Avoid water.

Dave Broom

Nose
Lifted, sweet and spicy. Nutmeg, banana, amaretto, coconut and some hickory. Dusty oak. Almost Cognac-like. Real complexity.
Palate
Soft, gentle. Quite honeyed, then a zap of lemon zest over the top of the dense fruit. Classy.
Finish
Tingling. Long.
Comment
Lulls you into a gentle world then zaps you in the middle of the mouth. A symphony in two movements. Highly recommended.
