Tasting review

Nose: Initial notes of apricot kernel and cedar set a majestic tone, which evolves into a beautiful array of tarte Tatin, fig jam, and heather honey. The essence of Grande Champagne terroir shines through, unveiling layers of porcini mushrooms, truffle, fallen leaves, and exotic fruits like mango, passion fruit, and flambéed banana, finished with a touch of Corinthian raisins.

Palate: Tessendier Lot 97 greets the palate with a vibrant and creamy texture. A lot of fruitiness with plum and white grape, leading into a dense, gravelly touch that fills the mouth with fullness and power. Mid-palate, experience a delicate layering of aromatic herbs, linden honey, almond milk, and raisins. The aftertaste blooms with floral notes of lilac, lavender, and rose petals.

Finish: A long, velvety finish continues the journey. It starts with flavors of licorice, violet candies, and cloves, transitioning into rich cocoa beans and candied ginger for a firm, elongated taste. The retro-olfaction brings a terpenic quality with apricot kernel, complemented by fruity strawberry and raspberry, and honeyed notes, leaving the empty glass with a lasting empyreumatic character.
