Le Reviseur VS 40%

Single Estate PetitChampagne

Tasted: June 2011

Quite rich and full on the nose with a lovely spicy perfume. Good depth of dried fruit and orange rind notes. It becomes a little high toned with time and slightly sharp as its youthfulness shows, but as an entry levelCognacit is very pleasant.

Soft and full on the palate with plenty of subtly honeyed dried fruit and some sweet oak. Good intensity and again its youthfulness shows with a floral note on the finish. No harshness or spiritiness, and very good value for money.

 

Le Reviseur VSOP 40%

Tasted: June 2011

The nose is a touch reserved but given some time it opens to display plenty of floral notes overlying a depth of juicy semi-dried grapes and sultanas. Good length with hints of whisky-like orange, sweet oak and an almost peaty/ loamy note.

Soft and juicy in the mouth with the semi-dried grapes and sultanas mingling with hints of apricot. It becomes quite oily and the youthful floralness sits at the edge of the palate. A really lovely, spicy middle. Good balance and length with hints of violets and sweet oak in the finish. Again very good value for money.
