Beautiful translucent colour, midway between dark red and cognac brown.
Not overly aromatic with some kirsch, raisins and dried prunes, good quality alcohol and a pinch of exotic, gingerbread spices. Fresh.
On the palate this is poised and perfectly balanced. Fruity, raisiny sweetness with kirsch cherries and prunes, gingerbread spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla & anise, dried mandarin peel.
Round & mellow with a hint of Yunnan tea tannins. Not sticky it overly sweet but with fresh, candied lemon acidity and a surprisingly long finish.

Explodes on the palate and then lingers with super rich, intense, and concentrated flavors. Classic notes like caramel, maple syrup, plum, and almond, plus some charred, smokey, and spice flavors. Bravo! 👏 — 3 months ago

Beautiful aromatics, with kirsch & candied fruit, a bushel of spice, nutty notes. Incredibly fresh and pure though.
Smooth on the palate, with a touch of tannic grip, amazing fresh, juicy acidity and still the presence of fruit, after 44y, amazing.

Not too sweet. Very floral. Feels like I’m chewing on flowers. — 2 years ago
