A tender and vegetal bouquet
Initial notes of breadcrumbs, fresh brioche and almond paste give way to elderflower and jasmine, then to fruit such as white peach and watermelon.
Notes of garrigue at dawn complete the ensemble.
A DIRECT AND ENVELOPING PALATE
Generous, ample and supple in structure, reminiscent of the cotton flower. Floral, aniseed and mentholated nuances bring lightness and freshness. The finish lingers on a delicate bitterness evoking fresh almonds.
