A tapestry of flavours
Cognac, Grande Champagne
With a gentle yet warm welcome we took our time to acquaint ourselves with the delicate tapestry of flavours. White chocolate, under ripe banana and apple and rhubarb crumble with vanilla custard were gentle woven together with salted caramel, digestive biscuits, rye cracker bread and a spicy hint of white pepper. Threads of white roses, vanilla pods and dried lavender danced with spray furniture polish, scented hand cream and under ripe honeydew melon. The sweetness of honey roast parsnips was balanced by dried grass that continued into the long finish that was dry and juicy with a tingle of crushed black pepper.
Drinking tip: Just take your time, sit back, relax and enjoy.
