Details

Amazing, subtle aromas of pear, mangosteen and hay combine with a complexity of flavours. This is an unusual but delicious cognac with charm and elegance. It is not from the same barrel as our last 1966 vintage.

Additional Information

Aroma Pear, mangosteen, banana, cedar and hay.
Ageing It was aged in 350 litre casks in damp cellars for nearly 50 years.
Distillation Distilled on a medium, inverted, tulip shaped still probably of around 15 - 20 hectolitres.
Flavour Initially there is mangosteen and pear but flavours of almond, lychee, macademia nuts and pink grapefruit develop.
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength It has been very carefully reduced from 50% to its optimum strength of 43.5%.
Viticulture Gentle, chalky slopes with relatively poor soil, ideal for vines.
