The first whiff is softly floral, think narcissus, and entirely creamy – very perfumed and intense. This is followed by insistent notes of wet chalk and pure lemon freshness along with a kind of savouriness, reminiscent of almond paste. With air, it becomes more and more pronounced. The palate has something joyful and generous, luminous and fresh, sinuous and poised. The intense concentration reveals profound flavour, a savoury saltiness that refers back to the almond paste, to cool, chalky, lemony depth. The length is astonishing and while delicious now, this will evolve beautifully.
