Any bottle of cognac that is date-stamped, is referred to as vintage and this bottle from 1960 is no exception. The grapes were harvested that year, sixty years ago, and distilled the following winter before being stored in Limousin oak casks for ageing. Only the very best cognacs are selected for long term ageing, left in damp cellars for decades. Now it has reached its optimum maturity, it is joining the award-winning Hermitage range.
Hermitage 1960 Grande Champagne Cognac is a beautifully complex, fine cognac from the southern part of Grande Champagne. An initial burst of dark chocolate on the palate is followed by a host of different flavours including pork crackle, liquorice, marzipan, turmeric and kumquat. Perfect for those turning 60 in 2020.
