Bright and golden amber.
In 2016, the Cuvée Constance beguiles with rich honey notes, candied orange, sweet cassis, rhubarb and passion fruit. With every breath, the complex and fascinating aroma changes and notes of Earl Grey tea, cardamom and galangal are added. At the same time, delightful fresh hints of lemon balm, nettle and cassis leaf open up. A true firework is in this rarity!
Oily and complex, this noble drop pours out on the tongue, with beguiling freshness embedded in the brilliant sweetness. The mid-palate is full of pressure and mineral salt, the drinking flow is extremely stimulating due to the acidity and the fine tannin, the finish is long and animating. Fantastic elixir with great aging potential, but also immediately invites to dream and indulge - and to creative cuisine.
