Description

The nose was initially sweet – meringues, madeleines and plum jam, then deepening to fig jam, dark marmalade and Agen prunes from Perigord; later still we found oiled wood, waxed jackets, tobacco leaf and leather, but much later, it had unexpectedly brightened to orange sherbet. The palate was also sweet at the start – butterscotch and fudge – but once again, the flavours deepened – to syrup of figs, salted caramel, black-jack chews (liquorice and blackcurrant) beurre noisette, children’s cough syrup and Pedro Ximenez; there was also an interesting spicy kick of sweet but tannic oak and coltsfoot that tingled our tonsils and tickled our gills.

DRINKING TIP: After dinner – and it absolutely doesn’t need water.
