This is a complex cognac but with an incredible balance. There are very few bottles of the 1966 vintage in existence so drink it slowly and savour every mouthful - it is a rare and truly wonderful experience.
|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 banana but gradually there are flavours of ripe peach, lychee, roasted almond and truffle all wrapped up in a wonderful rancio.|
|Grape Variety||Ugni Blanc|
|Reduction and Strength||It has been very carefully reduced from 54.7% to its optimum strength of 45.2%.|
|Viticulture||Gentle, chalky slopes with relatively poor soil, ideal for vines.|
