Here the distillate speaks, and it's frankly not bad, a nice surprise. You don't really feel any reduction (I don't think there has been any) and the softness felt is very natural.
A very pretty nose, soft, delicate and fruity.
We really start directly with the fruits of the orchard, with apricot, peach.
Then we continue with liquid acacia honey, with elderflower.
We have a little bit of old newspaper, very slightly dusty. Without entering either a very marked OBE.
With aeration, the dried orange makes its entry into the Seine, rather successful, accompanied by pineapple, and a little white pepper.
On the palate, the oak is more present without being overwhelming either.
We have pineapple, fresh and a little of its peel.
Always present, the fruits of the orchard are soft, suave, and bring a nice freshness.
Accacia honey, light white chocolate, light cardamom.
Very light coconut.
Long and sweet finish on white chocolate, fruit juice (peach, apricot, pineapple, kumquat).
OBE is felt a bit on the finish, with a slightly metallic and dusty fade.
