From the producer:
Nose : Elegant and balanced profile of wood, spices and fruits, a nice mixture of caramel, black currant and vanilla / reseda. Then it evolves on green banana, pear and apricot with some waxy and flowery notes.
Palate : Rich, the first sips show some varnish, pineapple and plum. The next ones are even fruitier with the apparition of sour cherry and gooseberry with delicate rose petal and ylang-ylang balanced by more earthy notes.
Finish : Quite long, spicy with nutmeg, fruity on cooked apple and fresh grape and floral on hyacinth.
