Nose
Slightly metallic (aluminium) start which then becomes more scented with sage and just a hint of soap. Underneath is a rigid hard quality, brass polish, new wood and red fruits. With water, scented tea.
Palate
More lifted and perfumed with lilac. The fruits have softened and sweetened. Begins to firm once more towards the finish.
Finish
Rigid.
Comment
Bold and well made. For me maybe just needs a bit more sweetness but worth a look.

Nose
Acetic. Nail varnish. Cooked apples and pears. Medlars. Sylvestry notes. Pine needles. Damp moss. This earth character rises up on time.
Palate
Crisp, tangy. Very leathery. Gives the sensation to chew some old satchel. Overripe pears. Reminds me of a rough Domfrontais calvados.
Finish
Dry, astringent. With that leather again.
Comment
The palate does not hold the promises of the nose. Disappointing. Where is that complexity picked on the nose?
