Martine Nouet

Nose
Elegant, mouthwatering. Praline ice cream. Turkish delight. A hint of exotic fruit. Mango. Spicy carrot cake.
Palate
Rich, fruity at start. A certain austerity. Oak is more present than on the nose.
Finish
Fades away slowly. Retains a delicate fruitiness.
Comment
Quite a complex character for its age. The palate is well-structured, just a little too woodframed.

Dave Broom

Nose
Masses of sweet oak: cocoa, hot butter, taffy, chocolate ganash and some light cherry notes. Some cereal alongside polished oak and nuts.
Palate
Excellent layering effect. Flows across the palate: creamy and smooth, hot gorse and very chewy.
Finish
Red and black fruits.
Comment
There's masses of oak here, but it has real sweet-hearted charm.
