Nose: Quite grapey and vinous initially. Some sponge cake aromas and a leafiness. Develops an oaky platform on which ripe raisins, malt loaf & fig syrup take turns to stpe forward. A littel nervy at first, but settles into quite expansive fruit & wood.
Palate: Mediumweight. Ripe and fruity, again on red grapes and raisiny fruitcake. A pleasant, mellow mouthfeel.
Finish: More syrupy notes as the raisin character intensifies. Dates. Quite figgy. Hints of woodspice.
Comment: A very accessible cognac, delicate and feminine in a very fruit-driven style.
