Right from the first sniff, this has so much going on. Earthy, wet clay, mineral notes are interspersed with wood resin, toasted hazelnuts, sweeter nougat, dried peach and fresh quince aromas. The palate has tremendous depth, awash with freshness, contrasting the almost Sauternes-like concentration of dried citrus, orchard fruit and honey notes, yet finishing completely dry. A layering of apricot, acacia wood and a floral lift bring impressive levels of flavour complexity to the palate. The sweeter nougat and floral perfumes linger on the energised finish.
