Tasting Note
This too displays some wood influence on the liqueur-like nose of pear, exotic dried yellow fruit that includes mango and apricot, along with hints of spice and acacia blossom. The super-rich, full-bodied and opulent broad-shouldered flavors are a beautiful combination of power and balance on the beautifully complex and lingering finish. This is a bit firmer than the Dent de Chien but no more complex or persistent, at least not today though with time in bottle, that could obviously change. Drink from 2024+.
