Pale and delicate in colour and taste. It is made by a highly respected old family in Ambleville near Segonzac in Grande Champagne.
|Aroma||Rosemary, dried citrus peel and hazelnuts|
|Ageing||250 litre casks, 6 months in new and then into old. Cellars are reasonably damp. The cognac is still in oak barrels|
|Distillation||Small firm with its own medium sized stills. Cognacs are very traditional here and the process is on the lees|
|Flavour||Delicate in taste, the flavour is reminiscent of pears and mace with a dried grapefruit and oak finish. It has a medium length with great balance|
|Grape Variety||Ugni Blanc|
|Reduction and Strength||The cognac is sold at 41% and is required to be reduced with distilled water|
|Viticulture||This is an area of gentle slopes with very porous chalk in several layers, predominantly of the Coniacian variety, allowing the vine roots to penetrate to a deep level|
