Panel's tasting note: "On the nose, we got sweet, aromatic fruits (pear, passion fruit) some grassy notes (making jam in a meadow) and confectionery (Haribo jelly snakes, Jelly Babies) – all in all, very attractive. The palate was lip-smacking and seductive, with a combination of sweetness and zing, like apricot jam and candied citrus peel. With water, we agreed it was complex and delightful – now discovering vanilla sponge and hints of linseed oil and putty. The reduced palate found perfumed pear, waxed fruity sweets and candy necklaces – very comforting and enjoyable – and one or two of us had to revise previous prejudices."
