A pronounced, creamy, toasted brioche nose,' began Savoy Grill's Matteo Cali, who found this 'rich and round on the palate, with some white fruits coming through too.' Team leader Sarah Jane Evans MW additionally described 'a delicate grapefruit character, and some oily notes on the palate, making this a good food match for Asian cuisine'.
