- Appearance : Polished mahogany, purple glints.
- Nose : Rich and direct. It displays its finest profile first: rich (caramelised candied fruit cake) on a background of light toasted oak notes. Next notes of oloroso sherry emerge. A jumble of crystallized sugar, freshly picked strawberries and raisins then appears. Dark chocolate, mushrooms and sage linger in the background. Intriguing.
- Palate : Soft at first, with ripe grapes and citrus fruit. Then drier notes and a hint of smoke envelope the cocoa and plums. Autumnal, surrounded by cedar wood and autumn fruits.
- Overall : Long and warm. Notes of espresso, fudge and red fruit tart.
