roducer`s Tasting NotesNose:
Appetisingly fruity. Chocolate and milky coffee, with juicy fruit
behind. Orange juice on breakfast pancakes? Later, pleasant scents of
wax and varnish. Adding water introduces a trace of baked apple.
Quite hot, some wood notes, after a medium-sweet start that bursts with
fruitiness. Apples, bananas? Needs water to bring out the voluptuous,
oily mouthfeel, top-palate sweetness then pleasant acidity. Develops
into spiced apples, then faded oil of cloves.
Finish: Lively, fresh and clean. Warming, medium-length. Spicy aftertaste.

Colour: deep gold. Nose: bold and rich, with tons of beehive aromas. Wax, hay jam, quince jam, mirabelle jam. Just beautiful. Hints of oak and vanilla, and whiffs of peat. Mouth: lots of crystallised fruits, apple compote, candy sugar and honey. Really beautiful. Long and nicely balanced finish, on dried fruits and vanilla ice cream. I liked it very much.
