Medium ruby red, faded amber rim. Fragrant, a bit ethereal on the nose: pencil strokes on the black and red currant fruit, sandalwood, menthol, cigarbox, old roses. A proper Paulliac on its back nine. More damson and spice on the palate. A bit structureless now. Of modest body and length. Many will find this to be a little slight. But not without merit. It is harmonious and well made; it has some breed; they chose not to extract something that was never there in the first place so it’s holding up well. A good Paulliac. But nearing its end so drink soon.
