Tasting Notes

Nose

Intense. Deep and complex. First, an intricate array of autumnal aromas. Bracken, wet earth, touch of moss.

Palate

Crisp, tight, sharp. With a rough texture like sanding paper. Sooty, very dry. The same aromatic mix as on the nose. Soothing on soft spices.

Finish

Dry. Soot also more sweetness.

Comment

The perfect image of the countryside in autumn on a wet chilly morning, with a mixture of fog and smoke hovering over the fields and the woods. Very suggestive.
