rich, dense. 1st sequence: blood orange, candied apricot, red currant jam, marzipan, quince jelly, dark chocolate… 2nd sequence: Russian leather, nutmeg, spice bread, emery cloth, beeswax, cardamom, coriander… 3rd sequence: incense, pine resin, cough sweets, mango, persimmon and more candied orange…
deep, firm. After such a concentrated sequence of aromas, the attack on the palate takes the reins with ease. Lime blossom honey, dark chocolate, heady notes of Havana cigar, iris butter, cumin and candied apricot give the wonderfully fresh palette of flavours lots of grandeur. With a particularly delicate texture, the mid-palate invites us to bite into deliciously juicy wild peach. The end of the palate offers the taste buds fresh fig and date. Outstanding.
long, balanced. Leading on closely from the end of the palate, the start of the finish is characterized by notes of liquorice stick, honey and lime blossom. Sherry then releases a truly sublime note of rancio (blood orange, quince jelly). In an homage to fruit, the very end of the palate and the retro-nasal olfaction are then especially exotic (mango, guava, persimmon). The empty glass is camphoric, spicy (curry, ginger) and rich (slightly burnt apricot tart).
