Additional Information

Aroma Needs to stand for a few minutes for the aromas to develop, they include hazelnuts, brioche, banana and gooseberries.
Ageing This is a very light coloured cognac which was almost certainly aged initially in new oak for a short period of between 4 – 6 months before being transferred to old oak casks.
Distillation Medium sized still.
Flavour Roasted hazelnuts with brioche and a hint of lime. Develops with banana, blueberries and a hint of strawberries with the zest of lime influencing the tail.
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc but possibly Folle Blanche too.
Reduction and Strength This has been reduced about 4% to provide better balance characteristics.
Viticulture The land here is flatter that that of Grande Champagne and the chalk is slightly less porous.
