|Aroma||This is a wonderfully complex cognac with a multitude of aromas. Initially there is a deep smell of kumquats and dried mandarin skins. The nose develops to nutmeg, roasted almonds, vanilla, coffee and melon but one can sit all day imagining all the delicious rich smells which mature in the glass.|
|Distillation||Large 25 hectolitre stills. The firm has 4 which produces all their eaux de vie|
|Flavour||Citrus flavours are the first to develop on the palate with a slightly spicy addition, this develops into dried almonds and a hint of marrow but still retaining an overall complexity of flavours.|
|Grape Variety||Ugni Blanc|
|Reduction and Strength||Some gradual reduction is necessary but interestingly they do not reduce down to 40%|
|Viticulture||Some of the finest chalk in the whole of Grande Champagne. Almost entirely Ugni Blanc|
