refined, creamy. The very distinguished first nose is characterized by notes of brioche, almond milk and exotic fruit (pineapple, plantain banana). Allowed to breathe, fine salt crystals cover the aromatic palette. The fruit then becomes gradually more intense (canary melon, apple, pear) and superbly herbaceous (rosemary), with raspberry and spicy (nutmeg, cardamom) tones making an energetic entrance.
rich, invigorating. Wavering between coffee, crushed almond, fresh walnut and spices (curry, cumin), the attack takes no prisoners. It is direct and focused on just one thing: meticulously reproducing every detail of the Old Pulteney style. Allowed to breathe, it becomes rich (lemon tart, Calisson d’Aix), milky (coconut, almond) and honeyed (lavender, lime blossom). Continuing on perfectly, the end of the palate is naturally heady (lily, gillyflower).
long, slightly tannic. The tertiary (corinthian raisin, date, fig) start to the finish is also praline and roasted (black tea, coffee). Gradually, a thin film of soot, star anise and liquorice coats the sides of the palate. Next and all at once, an exotic nostalgia (passion fruit, kiwi, mango) breaks onto centre stage. The very salty and peppery retro-nasal olfaction reproduces the roasted and vanilla aromas of a warehouse. The empty glass is balsamic (pine), hot (ointment), spicy (clove) and camphoric.
