"Exceedingly complex and broad in its depth of aromas and flavours." Judges' comments

A beautifully complex, fine cognac from the southern part of Grande Champagne.  An initial burst of dark chocolate on the palate is followed by a host of different flavours including pork crackle, liquorice, marzipan, turmeric and kumquat.  An astonishingly good cognac.
