"With heavy, rum-like caramel and treacle aromas, this cognac has a big palate offering flavours of peach melba, butterscotch and creamy coffee. The quality and intensity of fruit is simply excellent." Judges' comments

A magnificent cognac from the Premier Cru which has been aged in cellars that are of medium dampness for more than 50 years. It was stored in old oak 250 litre barrels which had a medium toasting. Beautifully balanced, this superb cognac from the 1950s has matured with great finesse and elegance.

Additional Information

Aroma Nutmeg, allspice and dark chocolate with citrus peel and kumquat.
Ageing Aged in oak barrels for more than 50 years.
Distillation The still would have been wood fired and the distiller would have watched over the process twenty-four hours a day.
Flavour A multitude of different flavours including cloves, black truffle, toast, walnuts, stewed plums, Clafoutis and Turkish Delight with a background of sweet spices and grapefruit peel.
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength No reduction. No additives.
Viticulture In most of the cognac growing area the vines are now machine picked but these would have been picked by hand when the vines were harvested. Handpicked grapes can often provide greater variation in final flavour.
