Details

Magnificent and complex cognac with many delicate fruit flavours and more robust walnut and peeled citrus qualities. This is one of the most traditional Grande Champagne cognacs and a real masterpiece for its age.

Additional Information

Distillation In old 5hl pot stills at around 70%. These stills are about the smallest available which normally makes very fine spirit. This was almost certainly distilled on it’s Lees
Flavour This has an oaky and nut complexity on initial taste with powerful tones. The complexity shows with dried orange and roasted chestnuts but the tail comes clean with grapefruit
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength We do not believe that this has been reduced
Viticulture The area is slightly hilly and with chalky substrate allowing the vine roots to penetrate for a great distance. Some vines can be as old as a hundred years
