Cognac Masters 2013 - Master Award
A magical fifty year old cognac that has matured in old casks in dark cellars for half a century. No wonder this is so good, it just oozes charm and is one of those bottles that is hard to put the cork back into. Lovely mocha and chocolatey flavours.
|Aroma||This has a superb aroma of rich toffee molasses, bitter chocolate, cardamom, sweet spices and ripe cherries|
|Distillation||25 hltr stills, distilled at the top end of the range around 71.5 degrees|
|Flavour||Quite characteristic of the distiller’s style with a rich flavour of chocolate and natural toffee. There is also a pleasing taste of mature Muscat grapes which is present on the front of the mouth. This cognac is soft and completely non- aggressive providing very moreish qualities|
|Grape Variety||Ugni Blanc|
|Reduction and Strength||Distilled water where necessary over a period of a year|
|Viticulture||A top growing area of Petite Champagne. The soil here is chalky and porous. There are gentle slopes and the chalk sub-strata is at various degrees of density. Climate is temperate with only very light frosts in winter|
