Bielle 2015 5 ans is a fine example of the know-how of the people of Saint-Galant. This unspoilt Caribbean island produces some of the most renowned agricultural rums in the world.
For this cuvée, the pure cane juice was pressed, fermented and distilled in Savalle columns in 2015. It then spent 5 years in two types of oak barrels, before being bottled in 2020.
Nico's tasting note
The nose opens with a combination of dry wood and sweet fruit, forming a rather young and fresh Bielle style from the outset. The plums, and the mirabelle plums in particular, give a sunny, rich and bright side. The ripe cane is there, in all simplicity, enjoying the landscape.
The aeration deposits some sweet spices like vanilla, and transforms the rum into a soft, tender and delicate object. The sugar cane then bounces back and adds to the freshness, creating the right balance.
The palate is rather lively, and first brings us back to the basics: sugar cane and its juice. A few peppery notes then emerge, leading to a spicy mid-palate, then woody, which then takes on chocolate nuances. Once freed from its oak bark, the ripe cane finally lets us appreciate the greediness of its fruitiness.
The finish is relatively light and finely spiced, it is the fresh cane that stays in mind for a while.
"A rather dashing Bielle, which develops its fruity style with freshness.
There is no opinion yet.
