FTGFOP1 EX1/2018 - Jardin Premier*
Darjeeling First Flush
- Issued from a garden respecting biodynamic principles -
The confidential garden of Nagri was created in 1857 by the British. Cultivated at altitude, this cru comes from a parcel of land reserved exclusively for Mariage Frères, in harmony with nature. Born on an excellent Terroir, the harvests are of an exceptional quality appreciated by aficionados seeking the finest Darjeelings. A lovely voyage to the heart of exquisite flavours.
The silver buds and the young ashy leaves deliver a bouquet of precious incense and Bengal quince.
A handsome deep green, the leaves reveal a gourmet accord of cacao bean and stewed plum.
Beautifully golden, the liquor opens on an ethereal fragrance of banana flower rounded out by sweet notes of nashi pear. A saveur of warm brioche joined to a fruity note of roasted peach accentuates the tasting.
A prized secret of a terroir d’excellence.
