Martine Nouet

Nose
Rich, creamy. Milk chocolate. Hay, meadow flowers. Cappuccino. Dried banana. Pepper.
Palate
Full-bodied. Waves of flavours. Stewed peaches, coffee, walnuts. Aniseed. With water, toffee and more cream.
Finish
Quite dry, thinner than palate. Nutty. Spicy.
Comment
Virile. Rich display of flavours. If I was to climb up the Fujiyama, I'd take a flask with me.

Dave Broom

Nose
Sweet and soft but with some creamy oak notes. Syrup/honey. Dried orange peel. Light cocoa butter. Violet. Has elegance.
Palate
Mouthfilling and sweet to start. Red fruits, stone fruits, caramel toffee. A procession of flavours. Balanced dry oak. Good weight.
Finish
Good length. Brazil nut. Dry grass. Residual sweetness.
