Nose.. It's different.. Sweet, oaky, vanilla, a massive fruity kick, grape and a hint of apples, shut your eyes and it takes you to an old French farm house, fresh baked bread on a rustic old oak table, a large glass of Whisky ( instead of wine ) the late evening sun just over the top of the hills, vines swaying in the evening breeze, just delightful..
Palate.. Wow, A fresh, smooth sweet fruit kick, full of grape, apples, vanilla, a soft oaky hint with a faint touch of spice,
Finish.. A fresh medium dry finish,
Just delightfully fresh and fruity, it just seems to work .. A lovely summertime dram
