Bulles de Ruche Tilleulmead is made from honey harvested in the Halatte forest in the Oise region by the Fourneaux family, beekeepers for 3 generations. This honey is renowned for its lingering botanical aromas, its length and its distinctive bitterness.
Pale lemon yellow. A bit of froth when poured but it quickly settles down to the tiniest, finest bubbles ever. It smells absolutely incredible. Yes, a bit of honey (the pale, thick-setkind where the top of the honey is so white it almost looks like cream), but more thananything it really does smell of linden blossom. The perfume! It's extraordinary! Delicatebut exquisite. And, despite the delicacy, very complex - just like the palate. There are alsonotes of linalool, orange blossom, iris and jasmine, deepening into clementines, grapefruitand cobnuts. This is one of the first meads I've tasted with an almost wine-like acidity.There is a very fine, ethereal grace note of spice, too high, too fleeting to place. But it'shere. I would compare it, perhaps to a Mosel Kabinett trocken in terms of both drynessand daintiness, and the finish is so clean and crisp that it finishes dry. My neighbour madea courgette, cardamom and caraway seed cake the other day, and I wish there was so left.
