Nose : distinguished, quaffable. The mineral (chalk), iodine and salty first nose reveals incredibly delicate peat and smoke. Allowed to breathe, the aroma palette imitates a distinguished Graves white wine from the Pessac-Léognan appellation. Little by little, spices (black pepper, ginger), salt and smoky grains of malted barley rise to the surface. With time, a beautiful fruity (pineapple) oxidation highlights the aromas of aromatic plants (chamomile, verbena, sage).
Appearance : pale gold.
Palate : lively, precise. The abundantly fruity (apple, Mirabelle plum) attack is also lush (green barley). On the mid-palate, blocks of peat seeped in seaweed and sea spray literally roll across the palate. A handful of white florals (lily, iris), bulrush and even bamboo shoot wonderfully punctuate the expressive end of the palate.
Overall : long, ethereal. The very milky (coconut, porridge) start to the finish is refreshed by the tangy juices of numerous citrus fruit (lemon, yellow grapefruit). Smoke vapours, ash and a liquorice peat then coat the end of the palate that bursts with mineral salts. The retro-nasal olfaction takes us to a malting floor. Notes of brioche and damp barley flood the air. The complex empty glass is medicinal, camphoric, peaty and peppery.
