Allowed to breathe, eucalyptus and beeswax bring out the preciously woody dimension. Continuing on perfectly, clove, mustard seed and camphor add an invigorating medicinal touch. Gradually, with huge style, fruit takes over, revealing Mirabelle plum, peach, passion fruit, gooseberry, damson plum and almond. A few heady florals (lily, French marigold) perfume the air.

It reveals beautiful vegetal and fibrous notes and pours very aromatic sugar over the palate.

The end of the palate is mentholated, inspired (incense) and oily (sunflower).

This tertiary evolution marks an important turning point in the tasting. The retro-nasal olfaction is a vegetable patch of its own. We find courgette, green cabbage, lettuce and even marine plants (samphire). The empty glass is balsamic (thuja), mentholated, powdery (cinnamon, crushed walnut) and exotic (banana).
