COLOUR

deep gold.

NOSE

fresh and spring-like. Extremely fruity, it evokes a fruit basket with aromas of grape, apples and pears. Particularly charming with subtle, underlying notes of vanilla and coconut, it opens up on chocolate, almond paste and praline. A touch of malted barley emerges, only to give way to more floral scents (lily, frangipani flowers) and a hint of musk.

PALATE

incredibly smooth. Pear and almond cake dominate the palate. Mandarin citrus fruit briefly appears, before giving way to malted barley notes, without ever developing any bitterness. A slightly unripe pear note brings freshness.

FINISH

very clean finish. Oscillates between barley and fruit aromas, leaving the palate fresh and available.

Recommended Serves

Straight, on the rocks, or highball/mizuwari.

Food Pairings

Light, summery dishes
