- Typically a Mortlach, and a very good one indeed!
it has it all, metallic and sulphury body, quite untamed. It starts fruity and spicy but evolves in the mouth, every sip you get something new. After a while some floral flower notes appear even.
the finish is long and lingering.
- TASTING NOTE of LMDW:
Appearance : burnished gold with glints of topaz.
Nose : full-bodied, unctuous. The initial nose is splendid and radiant, with a delicate salinity superimposed on citrus zest, aromatic plants (camomile), heady florals (lily, iris) and candied fruit (apple, plum). It gradually takes on a chocolatey, roasted (pipe tobacco, coffee) and spicy (cardamom, cloves) character. With remarkable depth, it continues with notes of saffron, accompanied by a hint of tar and rancio.
Palate : lively, precise. Delicious sweet brioche attack. Exotic fruit (pineapple, passion fruit, mango) follow with abundant energy. This continues into the mid-palate, which becomes remarkably mineral (schist, slate), roasted (tea) and mentholated. Very full-bodied, the end of the palate evokes rum with heady scents of geranium.
Overall : long, silky. Velvety, oily tannins coat the taste buds, while oranges flood the palate with sweet, tangy juice. Still with the same freshness, it grows increasingly floral (rose petals) and herbaceous (courgette fritters). Divinely chocolatey and silky, the retro-nasal olfaction has incredible length. The empty glass wavers between aromatic plants, cinnamon and bourbon vanilla.
- LMDW tasting note
Color: old gold with topaz reflections. Nose: ample, unctuous. Salty on the skin on citrus zests, aromatic plants (chamomile), heady flowers (lily, iris) and candied fruit (apple, plum), the first nose is beautiful and radiant. It becomes gradually chocolate, roasted (pipe tobacco, coffee) and spicy (cardamom, cloves). Incredibly deep, it lingers on saffron notes, slightly tarred and rancid. Palate: lively, precise. His brioche attack is a real treat. Exotic fruits (pineapple, passion, mango) then give it a crazy energy. The same goes for the remarkably mineral mid-palate (shale, slate), roasted (tea) and menthol. With a lot of fullness, the end of mouth evokes a rum with the heady perfumes of geranium. Final: long, fluffy. Its velvety and oily tannins coat the taste buds while oranges flood the palate with their sweet / sour juice. With ever more freshness, it becomes more and more floral (rose petal) and herbaceous (zucchini donut). Divinely chocolatey and silky, the retro-olfaction shows a breathtaking length. The empty glass oscillates between aromatic plants, cinnamon and bourbon vanilla.
