Cognac Masters 2010 - Gold Award.

From Chez Richon,  Christophe, a good friend of Brandyclassics, is hugely experienced in dilution and has been known to take 5 years to bring a cognac down from distillation strength. This cognac won a Gold Award at the 2010 Cognac Masters in the Vintage Category and is remarkably similar to the Hermitage 2000 which has now sold out.

Additional Information

Aroma There are mocha and roasted walnut aromas
Ageing Lovely cellars, damp and full of interesting aromas. Cognacs from here are well aged and much care is taken to get them just right
Distillation A new 25 Hltr still has been installed here but this was made on the old 12 hltr still and is of high quality.
Flavour The mocha and roasted walnut is evident to all who taste this masters gold medal cognac
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche
Reduction and Strength Very slow dilution.
Viticulture The soil here is flatter than that around Segonzac and the Coniacian chalk is similar to that on which the town of Cognac is built. The weather here is at its most even with only nominal extremes of hot and cold and low rain fall. Vines are Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche
