Martine Nouet

Cider. Burnt apple tree. A rustic bouquet. Cow-shed. Distant smokiness. Earthy roots. Freshly baked multi-grain bread. Sultanas. A seashore echo.
Smooth and soft. Too soft. Sweetness thickens mouthfeel and taste. Nutty. Wood is there, not dominating but blurring the flavours.
Slightly spicy, sweet. Liquorice. Lacks elegance.
The nose is lively but the palate is put to sleep by sweetness.

Immediate peatiness. Turfy rather than marine. Phenolics, macadamia nut, horchata. Light meaty note. Sweet centre.
Light smoke lying above firm, young grassy, notes. Beech nuts, heather. Silky feel.
Good length. Drifting smoke.
This seems to have the peatiness more to the fore than in the past.
