Aged in barrels for more than 50 years, the Hermitage 1945 has developed good colour and flavours. It is beautifully balanced with flavours of lychee, passion fruit, rosemary, cocoa and a long grapefruit tail. Undeniably a fine cognac from the heart of Grande Champagne, the top cru of Cognac.

|Distillation||Traditional Charentais Alembic still, probably a relatively small one.|
|Flavour||Lychee, passion fruit, rosemary, cocoa and a long grapefruit tail.|
|Grape Variety||Ugni Blanc|
|Reduction and Strength||We believe that a very small quantity of distilled water was used in the initial stages of its ageing.|
|Viticulture||Gentle, chalky Cognacian slopes which allow the vine roots to penetrate deep into the ground.|
