Cognac Masters 2015 - Gold Award

The youngest cognac in our Provenance range but similar in style with its mocha and nut flavours. Aged for a minimum of 6 years it could be labelled an XO, but we prefer to tell our customers exactly what they're drinking.

Additional Information

Aroma There are aromas of almonds, walnuts and some coffee.
Ageing 350 litre casks, 6 to 8 months in new and then old Limousin casks. Cellars are medium damp with natural floors
Distillation Distillation is on a small still with a relatively straight sided still head which minimizes rectification. This together with fairly heavy lees enables maximum wine flavours.
Flavour Nutty flavours with coffee and hints of mocha, slightly spicy.
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength This cognac is reduced in strength and matured in newer casks with some added wood chips to increase the reaction of wood with the natural tannins. Reduction at this level takes nearly two years to complete.
Viticulture The soil here is flatter than that around Segonzac and the Coniaçian chalk is similar to that on which the town of Cognac is built. The weather here is at its most even with only nominal extremes of hot and cold and low rain fall.
