Eye
pale gold in colour with green glints. Bright, luminous and limpid.

The nose
evolves in a pure, distinguished maner. We discover its soft, suave nature as fresh citrus notes give way to aromas of vanilla, menthol and fern…

Taste
illustrates its class, richness, fullness, finesse and mellowness evelving in a resolutely mineral universe that only time will check. The extremely long finish leaves us with the impression of having experienced a wonderful moment of happiness.

Serving temperature:
