FTGFOP1 DJ1/2017 - Jardin Premier*
Darjeeling First Flush
This excellent Darjeeling Nouveau 2017 makes its sensational world premiere at Mariage Frères.
Ambootia (which means « Land of the mango trees ») is one of the most famous gardens of Darjeeling in the foothills of the Himalayas. For over twenty years, this majestic plantation has been cultivated in complete harmony with this exceptional Terroir according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture, methods which have contributed to the fame of this prestigious appellation.
Dried leaves :
The young leaves and handsome, tender silver-green buds deliver a note of rich cake generously garnished with candied fruits.
Infused leaves :
Luminous jade. A mesmerising fragrance of Lily-of-the-valley covered in morning dew mingles with an aroma of candied jujube.
The gilded robe is simply sublime. The persistent and enchanting flavours evoke fig jam with green almond undertones highlighted by a floral wave of narcissus. The invigorating and soothing freshness of lotus seed pop in the mouth, followed by a soft, gourmet note of ripened star fruit.
The secrets of a terroir of excellence.
