Perfumy, fruity. Passion fruit. Raisiny. Nutty dryness, marzipan.
Very complex. Toffee, creamy, winey, aniseed.
Long, bitter black chocolate.
- Red fruits, light blackcurrant, blueberry, pear, redcurrant, blackberries, muscat grapes, sweet apple, this nose is bewitching, with just enough spices to enhance the fruit. Lie-de-vin, saffron. Mouth made with vanilla, prune, cinnamon and benzoin. An intense woodiness comes to structure the whole. Despite the light alcohol content, it is very ripe. Fairly long finish with very red but juicy plum. Heather earth, peach skin, blood orange. It takes a long time to pass out.
Frankincense, candle wax, dusty wood. Ripe plums and raspberries. Some mint.
Oranges. Cloves and cinnamon. Dark chocolate.
