full-bodied, unctuous. On the first nose, one fruit dominates the aromatic palette: banana. Wonderfully ripe, it is placed on a bed of straw. Gradually, spices slip into the cracks, with cinnamon, nutmeg, liquorice and black pepper. Notes of camphor and tiger balm then add a very lively medicinal dimension. At the same time, the fruity register is enriched with new exotic fruits (pineapple, mango), whilst the fragrances of elderberry flower fill the air.
rich, taut. With authority, the attack highlights not only a fruit of rare intensity (apple, chasselas grape, William’s pear) but also a profoundly earthy character (damp soil, root ginger). With a very pleasant saltiness, the mid-palate is wonderfully filled with sweet pastry notes (vanilla flan, walnut cake). The end of the palate is then chocolatey, floral (daffodil, dandelion), mentholated and roasted (tobacco, coffee). Magnificent.
long, very peaceful. With lots of cappuccino, the start of the finish is also refreshingly herbaceous (coriander, dill). Slightly aniseedy, it develops a more vegetal register (liquorice stick, aniseed, ivy). Then, with perfect timing, delicious fragrances of lime blossom further raise the level of the tasting. On the retro- nasal olfaction, we enjoy courgette flower fritters, a vanilla éclair and fresh figs. The empty glass is spicy (curry, star anise, clove), vanilla and herbaceous (lichen, spearmint, sage).
