Serge Valentin (93)

The last part of the trilogy, released in September 2003. Colour: bronze-greenish. Nose: again the typical tropical fruits: first lots of fresh orange, then X-mas cake, roasted pecan nuts. Goes on with old turpentine, juniper wood, sandalwood and old rose. Whiffs of incense, then peat, then pure smoke, together with some waxy notes.

This beauty then stays on dried orange, with some very nice winey notes from the sherry. Mouth: a great attack on grapefruit, banana flambéed, caramel sauce and sweet white wine (vin de paille). Plum jam. It also gets slightly meaty, and perhaps just a little clumsy. Perhaps the mouth doesn’t deliver just everything the nose promised, but this one is still an absolute winner.
