Nose: Rich and intense. Very elegant. Peat notes are delicately supported by aromas of fresh fruit. It expresses a sense of great maturity. Resin, rosewood and sunny (preserved apricot), it grows in depth. The peat also increases its presence, and becomes dry (coal) and marine (seaweed, salt).
Palate: Ample, “spherical”. A note of liquorice and frangipane. It has a smoky character, but remains delicate and nuanced. The fruitiness is strong (quince, apple, black cherry). It moves from peat to ripe fruit and back through the aromas in reverse order.
Finish: Long, dense. Perfectly balanced. Field flowers, sweet fruit and nuts give an autumnal and sunny sensation. It develops into rose jam.
Awards: Many Awards won
