Martine Nouet

80
Nose
Big sherry. Hint of sulphur and a butyric touch. Oaky. Dried fruit. Overcooked damson plums. Orange marmalade. Bitter chocolate. Plus an earthy note which lingers around.
Palate
As expected, on the oaky side. The butyric note of the nose is fading. Bitter. Burnt caramel, chocolate. Touch of chilli.
Finish
Dry and spicy.
Comment
Classic good sherry maturation. Nothing to complain about.

83
Nose
A little sulphury at first, a hint of ripe blue cheese then it becomes all sweetness, demerara sugar and maple syrup. Tomato stalks, old lilies and a hint of beef roasting in the oven.
Palate
Masses of Christmas pudding and almond skins. Bitter elements mixed with dark honey, sherry notes and dunnage warehouses.
Finish
Spicy with a little bitter note.
Comment
A small lovely sherry bomb for post dinner conversations.
