L’Ormarins LBV 2015

L’Ormarins LBV 2015

Rich fruitcake, plum and raisin nose with spice and a touch of oak below. Notes of muscovado sugar and caramel too. The palate is spicy with a bright peppery edge. Sweet, rich and raisin, prune and ripe plum flavour but with lovely dryness as a counterpoint. Genteel and refined with lovely body, depth and concentration as well as length. Lively and bright throughout. Animated but stylish and poised. Lingering aftertaste.
