    Nose:
    Direct peaty and a fresh fruitiness on the mixed fruit basket, candied pear, pineapple
    Herbal scents, almond kernel
    Very pleasant return pastry chef
    Stuffy :
    Almond sweetness with velvety, bitterness then peppery spices
    The earthy peat, the dirty hay of the barn (the one just behind the original head office, a nod to Le Gus't)
    The pastry side with the vanilla velouté, the almond shell again combines with the mixed fruit syrup, fruit from the orchard with the predominant pear), a little citrus fruit (lime) and apricot, mirabelle plum and crushed banana .
    The alcoholic integration is stunning, the bitterness in return makes it possible to amplify the vanilla cream side, pastry cream
    The vegetal peat returns, peppery and leaves on an intense rendering of sap.
    Final:
    Delicate, sweet, almondy, earthy peat without spray, intense pepper, stewed fruit with its syrup.
    Very pleasant.
