Martine Nouet

77
Nose
Malty and oaky. Bracken, wet straw, damp wood. Opens on soft fruit and cider apple. Aniseed hint.
Palate
Crisp. Sweet and bitter. Oak speaks up. Raisins, candied ginger, hazelnut cake. The oak grip keeps on. A distant yeasty note.
Finish
Dry, oaky.
Comment
An oaky character. Aromatic but a bit dour, especially on the palate.

75
Nose
Soft and gentle with spun sugar notes at first. Then a little green tobacco, moving to dark treacle, fresh ploughed fields.
Palate
Sweet fruit, apple compote and brown sugar. A little nougat, faint spices and warming bread. The oak takes a grip too but is well integrated.
Finish
White chocolate and drying.
Comment
Up front sweetness at first but in time there is more than just sugar here.
