Additional Information

Aroma There is an intense richness of this delightful cognac with aromas of dried apricots and almonds.
Distillation Recenty installed some new big stills. Their style is fruity and distillation is probably around 68 -70 degrees. This is a well managed and good distillery
Flavour The rich flavour of apricots is enhanced by a gentle rancio which leaves a long smooth flavour on the palate.
Grape Variety 80% Ugni Blanc also Colombard and Folle Blanche
Reduction and Strength Eau de vie mixed with distilled water, only small quantities used as cellars are quite dry.
Viticulture The ground here is flat. The chalk here is probably Santonian being more compacted than that of the Cognacian further to the north. Grape varieties are mainly ugni blanc but the firm also has a reasonable level of Colombard and Folle which they put to goo
