Bulles de Ruche Lavande is produced from a lavender honey protected by the IGP Provence, harvested by the beekeepers of the Provençal company Miel Martine on the Valensole plateau. Easily recognisable with intense floral aromas that evoke the sweetness of Provence, it is also one of the favourite honeys of the French.
Colour is very pale lemon yellow. The honey on the nose smells darker, denser, richer. Even a little sweet-soy-mushroomy! Much richer on the palate with a rye-bread note - one sip of this and I am thinking about home-made rye toast slathered with meltingbutter and honey. But there is also a subtle, cooling, fresh-green spectrum fanning outbehind the richness: violet, sliced cucumber, bruised borage leaf, sage water. It's alsoright on the cusp of dry and off dry, finishing in slices of cinnamon-dusted, fresh greenapple. Is this what François Chartier would describe as a 'cooling wine'?
