"The real personification of just how good and elegant old Cognac can be." Judges' comments

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.

Additional Information

Aroma Delicate aroma of pork crackle which continues on to cumin, green walnuts and fennel.
Ageing Aged in oak barrels for more than 50 years.
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.
