"All good things must come to an end" is a much used axiom which certainly applies to our Hermitage 2005 Vintage. What a huge success it has been over the past few years! A Gold Award winner at the Cognac Masters, its popularity went from strength to strength but of course the stocks depleted accordingly. Our entry level vintages from the Chez Richon region have all been great successes - 1999, 2000 & 2005 - and we feel sure the new 2010 will be just as sought after.
Distilled at the turn of the last decade, this recent arrival is still in cask, ensuring that its flavours continue to mature ..... initial mocha on the palate leads to toffee and spices such as mace with apricot and mandarin on the finish. We always like to see a Grande Champagne Cognac aged for a minimum of 10 years, as cognacs from this cru take longer to mature than those from other crus; the 2010 is already in its eleventh year. Retailing at under £70, its the perfect summer treat and if you've not owned a vintage cognac before, this is the perfect excuse to try one!
