Martine Nouet

Nose
Intensively fruity. Notes of ripe banana. Lemony. Scent of a garden after a summer rainfall. Lemony.
Palate
Sweet and smooth. Good fruity sensation. Melon. Pears poached in a spicy syrup. Almond cake.
Finish
Medium, spicy.
Comment
A fruity character. Well-balanced.

Dave Broom

Nose
Clean and sweet. Baked banana, vanilla sugar, mango, just mown grass drying in the sun. New oak. Destroyed by water.
Palate
Quite light and slightly hollow. Lacks a mid-palate and becomes coarse to the finish.
Finish
Hard.
Comment
Lacks any real individual character – or middle palate.
