Details

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.

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 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.
