Martine Nouet

Nose
Perfumy. Floral and fruity. Rose syrup, wine gums (blackcurrant). Marzipan in the back. Entrancing. Evokes the tender world of a candy shop. Then more of oak. Polished old floor.
Palate
Lively but smooth. Velvety, lusciously flowing. More oak than fruit but all is well integrated. A pleasant spicy tickle at mid-palate.
Finish
Drying, spicy, nutty. Lingering.
Comment
A charming old lady with her pockets full of candies. Who can resist?

Ian Wisniewski

Nose
Rich and composed, toffee, apricot, cherries, underlying hints of vanilla and chocolate.
Palate
Creamy créme caramel is soon overlain by a rich fruit sauce with cherries, prunes and apricots, followed by orange marmalade, lightly spicy oak and malty notes emerging.
Finish
Fruit recedes while chocolate, caramel maltiness opens up.
Comment
A medley of fruit conveniently assembled in a glass rather than a bowl.
