La Quintinye Vermouth Royal Blanc Reviews
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: Sweet up front, with grapefruit, hay, pine and lots of leafy herbs, including lots of sage.
Palate: Sweet with orange and liquorice touches, but with fewer herbs and less complexity than the nose. Wine gums, woody hints and an oily mouthfeel lead to gentle herbal bitterness and a touch of fragrant wood and herb.
Finish: Sweet orange and grapes, brioche, spiced pastry, dried apples and a touch of green leafiness.
Comment: I rather enjoyed this on its own, with the bitterness of the wormwood balanced well by the sweet fruity notes.
