ABV: 41%
Tasting note: Deep polished copper. Lovely aromas include dried fig, new leather and cigar box. Develops extra fruit focus and honey with further air contact. Incredibly soft in the mouth with dry and delicate flavours of vanilla, dark chocolate and hints of caramel in the finish. Deepens as it unfolds in stages. Excellent length. Drying cedary oak / cigar box fade. 41% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... [Tasted 2004] Made from estate-grown, chateau-bottled Grande Champagne grapes and eaux-de-vie that are between 15 and 20 years old. Aroma of damp earth, succulent fresh fruit, flowers and spice. Palate entry is off-dry, caramel-like and properly oak; at midpalate, the flavor deepens, offering lip-smacking tastes of light toffee, almond butter and vanilla extract. Finishes candied and rich. 90-95 points - www.wineenthusiast.com
