This Grande Champagne cognac is produced by a firm in the centre of cognac who produce from three vineyards in the very best parts of the cru. It is a particularly complex 25 y.o. that has benefited from expert ageing in Limoursin oak barrels. A multitude of aromas and flavours which develop in the glass , but only if you can manage to keep it in there long enough.

Additional Information

Aroma Initially there is a deep smell of kumquats and dried mandarin skins, but this is a wonderfully complex cognac with a multitude of aromas. The nose develops to nutmeg, roasted almonds, vanilla, coffee and melon and if you can resist drinking it you will be rewarded with many more delicious rich smells as it matures in the glass
Ageing Aged in damp cellars in 350 litre casks for 25 years. The cellars are extensive and the firm has much experience in developing these fine cognacs
Distillation This cognac was distilled in one of two 25 hltr stills with a relatively narrow head and short swans neck
Flavour The overall complexity of the flavours is retained from start to finish, with a slightly spicy addition appearing after the initial citrus flavour has developed on the palate. This is then followed by a development into dried almond and a hint of marrow. A superior Grande Champagne, complex and well balanced
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength Reduction to 43 degrees
Viticulture Some of the finest chalk in the whole of Grande Champagne. Almost entirely Ugni Blanc
