"Unbelievable flavours" Judges comments

A soft, smooth cognac with very moreish qualities. Petite Champagne cognacs mature marginally quicker than those from neighbouring Grande Champagne. This cognac was aged for over 30 years to produce it at its very best.

"Presented in a gorgeous box, this is one of the world's best cognacs" Olly Smith, TV Presenter & Journalist

Additional Information

Aroma The aroma of luxury cognac is to be savoured. This has a wonderful aroma of molasses, bitter chocolate, cardamom spice and ripe cherries.
Ageing This Petite Champagne cognac has been aged in relatively damp cellars which help to prevent the barrels from becoming too dry. The dampness keeps the spirit in contact with the natural tannins in the oak for longer and evaporation is very slow. This cognac has been aged for over 30 years.
Distillation Cognacs are always double distilled in stills known as Charentais Alembics
Flavour As with all good cognacs the flavours are complex. A rich flavour of chocolate and natural toffee combines with mature Muscat grapes to provide a soft, smooth cognac with very moreish qualities.
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc
Reduction and Strength Petite Champagne cognacs mature marginally quicker than those from neighbouring Grande Champagne. Some very gradual reduction has taken place, over the period of a year, to ensure that this cognac is sold at its best strength.
Viticulture Relatively poor soil is ideal for growing cognac vines as their roots are forced to grow deep into the ground seeking water. The porous chalk layers found on these gentle slopes are some of the best for growing vines in Petite Champagne.
