Tasting notes


Nose

Elegant and balanced profile of wood, spices and fruits, a nice mixture of caramel, black currant and vanilla / reseda. Then it evolves on green banana, pear and apricot with some waxy and flowery notes.


Palate

Rich, the first sips show some varnish, pineapple and plum. The next ones are even fruitier with the apparition of sour cherry and gooseberry with delicate rose petal and ylang-ylang balanced by more earthy notes.


Finish

Quite long, spicy with nutmeg, fruity on cooked apple and fresh grape and floral on hyacinth.
