This Hermitage 2005 Grande Champagne Cognac was created with exceptional skill as no caramel or sugar syrup were added, a considerable achievement with a young cognac.  Mocha and roasted walnuts flavours are found, along with hints of pineapple – our legendary style.

Additional Information

Chocolatey mocha with walnuts and some vanilla followed by tangerine peel.
350 litre casks, 6 to 8 months in new and then old Limousin casks. Cellars are medium damp with natural floors.
Distillation is on a small still with a relatively straight sided still head which minimizes rectification. This together with a fairly heavy lees enables maximum wine flavours.
Initial mocha on the palate leads to toffee, hazelnut, roasted walnut and spices such as mace with hints of pineapple and a tangerine peel finish.
Grape Variety:
Mainly Ugni Blanc but some Folle Blanche is also known to be available and used in this cognac.
Reduction & Strength:
This cognac is reduced in strength and matured in newer casks with some added wood chips to increase the reaction of wood with the natural tannins. Reduction at this level takes nearly a year to complete .
The soil here is flatter than that around Segonzac and the Coniaçian chalk is similar to that on which the town of Cognac is built. The weather here is at its most even with only nominal extremes of hot and cold and low rain fall.
