    sergeColour: amber with reddish hues (thigh of a moved nymph, would say a 18th
    century painter). Nose: punchy, with a big, bold sherry. Lots of cooked red
    fruits (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries) and prune jam… Getting fruitier
    and fruitier (fresh strawberries, boxed litchis and pineapples). It really
    starts to smell like a good Beaujolais (Juliénas) after a moment, with notes of
    fresh pastries, butter croissants… Faint whiffs of smoke and flowers (peonies).
    Very fresh indeed, nothing to do with the usual sherry monsters (no
    rum-raisins-chocolate). Mouth: quite spirity, much less clean now. Starts like a
    fruit eau-de-vie (kirsch, plums), with something quite rubbery. Gets quite sour
    and somewhat acrid at the same time, with the rubber getting bolder. Something
    bitter as well… Fruitcake, wine and caramel sauce… Not my favourite kind of
    profile, probably too vinous for my tastes. The finish is rather long but a
    little bitter and sugarish at the same time. Too bad, the nose was truly great.
