Martine Nouet

Nose
Clean, rich, buttery, sweet. Butter and ground almond cakes. Hazelnut milk chocolate. Oak elegantly intertwines with rich cake aromas.
Palate
Sweet and spicy. Oak speaks up, covering fruit with spices. Nutmeg, ginger.
Finish
Dry, assertive. Dark chocolate. Bitter root. Toasted nuts.
Comment
The nose is more enticing than the palate. Water reduces the gap, bringing in a velvety texture.

Dave Broom

Nose
Full and fudge-like cut with green orange peel, herbs and marzipan. Well-balanced.
Palate
A fresh clean nutty start with notes of patisserie, powdered almond before a hint of incense/Turkish delight. Concentrated.
Finish
Spicy and dry.
Comment
Well made, but lacks the complexity and range of the best.
