Cognac Masters 2012 - Master Award

This exceptionally rare and sought after cognac was found in an old cellar to the north of Cognac. We were lucky in obtaining a complete bonbonne for bottling. Just don’t hang about, this is not going to last.

"My most prized bottle is a 1914 Cognac Hermitage Borderies which has an incredible spectrum of flavours, from toffee to walnuts." Olly Smith, Journalist & TV Presenter

Additional Information

Aroma There is an aroma of rich pineapple syrup and Turkish coffee with nutmeg
Ageing This cognac has aged for a very long time in old cellars. The barrels were Limoursin oak and the cellar conditions were damp
Distillation Traditional Charentais stills. Probably about 15 hltr. The balance and style suggests that the still head was relatively narrow
Flavour Burnt sugar and toffee with a hint of chocolate and brazil nuts. This has all the true characteristics of a true Borderies cognac and shows an intense Rancio. The balance is extraordinarily fine and leaves a highly rich and flavoursome cognac
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength No reduction in the producers cellar but we have reduced it 1.5% to improve the balance and enhance the flavour
Viticulture The soil in this region has a greater clay content than the very chalky Grande Champagne region but the land is protected and does not suffer from such severe frosts
