COLOR BEFORE WATER 8/10
Clear, with a very subtle yellow-greenish hue, hinting at rich herbs.
LOUCHE ACTION 9/10
Builds pleasingly steadily, turning Blanche Neige evenly opaque; white without becoming chalky. Take care to add water slowly.
COLOR AFTER WATER 9/10
Nice, evenly opaque
Suggests the scent of an Alpine meadow carried on the breeze. Fruity and with a feminine aspect.
The Blanche Neige has a creamy and rich mouth-feel.
Well balanced. A sweet touch on the tongue, accessibly subtle anise, and pleasant light touches of bitterness from grand wormwood and génépi.
OVERALL IMPRESSION 9/10
Very smooth, silky on the palate. A finish of reasonable length, with some sweet hints remaining. Further glasses remain interesting without becoming overpowering.
