Made on a small 12 hectolitre still in the heart of Grande Champagne, this cognac provides great complexity. Flavours of clove, masala, wild cherry, mocha and roasted walnut are all apparent but others such as brazil and citrus peel linger in the background. The flavour is enhanced by the slightly higher strength of 47%.
|Aroma||Cigar box, dried fig and cherry wood.|
|Ageing||350 litre casks, 6 - 8- months in new and then old Limousin casks. Cellars are damp with natural floors.|
|Distillation||On a small 12hl still with a relatively straight sided still head to minimise rectification.|
|Flavour||Clove, masala, wild cherry, dried fig and roasted walnuts are all apparent with a long dried orange peel finish.|
|Grape Variety||Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche|
|Reduction and Strength||Very slow reduction with water.|
|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.|
