The gold-highlighted mahogany colour and the complexity of the aromas - wine esters with distinctive balsamic notes - remind us of the brandy's lengthy presence in wood. The palate is medium-dry, smooth and full, with burnt undertones and hints of vanilla, followed by a long, pleasing finish.

Wine EnthusiastThe fabulous bouquet offers aromas of old leather, old books, toasted marshmallow, pipe tobacco and deep scents of prune Danish. Entry is luscious, ripe and sweet but not cloying; the midpalate is concentrated, fruity, Sherry-like and caramelized. Concludes balanced and honeyed. A masterpiece.
