Serge Valentin (87)

Monkeys and giraffes on the label, should this one be more tropical? Colour: gold. Nose: neighbouring territories, of course, although this one would be a tad shier at this point, a little greener too (kiwis, rhubarb). A little less mineral, a little grassier. A touch of pineapple, butane-2,3-diol diacetate, perhaps. Ha! With water: moss and fern, sauvignon blanc, gooseberries. Mouth (neat): excellent but rather fruitier than expected, going towards Haribo’s best. Orange bonbons and something a tad fizzy, lemon drops… And rather less wax than usual. With water: more wax this time, but it would come with some Aperol (apologies) and Schweppes. Thank God no prosecco. Finish: long, rather more coherent. But really, this has gone towards some kind of high-strength spritz. Comments: actually, it never stopped improving, after tinier beginnings
