Cognac

For more than three centuries cognac has been recognised as the finest of all spirits distilled from grapes. It is incomparable in its sheer depth and intensity of flavour, its fruitiness, warmth and complexity and both its richness and subtlety of bouquet. Indeed cognac is the king of all brandies and originates from around the sixteenth century when farmers grew grapes for wines which were shipped along the Charente River in France to the port of La Rochelle, where they were bartered for goods brought in by English, Irish and Dutch traders. Often the weak and acidic wines would become rancid and traders learnt to reduce them by boiling them in pot stills. The strong wines were stored in oak casks which enhanced their flavour and gave them colour, they called them Cognac from around the town of that name in the centre of the Charente region.

Today there are around five thousand producers of the noble spirit, most making it for the big houses such as Hennessey Martell, Courvoisier and Remy Martin who blend them for their generic brands. Many of these old cognac families have been distilling their wines for generations developing the knowledge passed down from their forefathers and perfecting the skills of distillation and ageing. Some of the very oldest cognacs may have lived in their barrels or glass demijohns in cellars for hundreds of years and have today become priceless nectars of increasing rarity and value. Hermitage Cognacs are from individual single estate distillers, all of whom have aged their cognacs naturally and without the addition of additives. They are the very quintessence of purity and luxury. They are the king of all cognacs.

  1. Jean Fillioux La Pouyade VSOP 8 Year Old Cognac

    Wine Enthusiast Magazine 2018 - 96 points

    This is an extraordinary 8 year old cognac made in the region of Grande Champagne known as Juillac le Coq. The cognac is light and well balanced providing very little of the burn one would expect from such a young Grande Champagne cognac. Named after the family estate, it certainly does it justice.

    Aroma:
    Aroma: Mangosteen with a hint of lemon grass and lime
    Flavour:
    Flavour: Mangosteen is clearly also apparent on the palate with some sweet apple, white peach and lychee

  3. Hermitage Chez Richon 2005 Grande Champagne Cognac

    Cognac Masters 2015 - Gold Award

    Making cognacs suitable for drinking young is exceptionally difficult without the use of caramel and sugar syrup. The 2005 has succeeded where others have failed. Its style is consistent with others from Chez Richon with some mocha and toffee flavours, a delight for such youthfulness.

    "...packed with nutty detonations and a depth charge of delicious tangerine tang" Olly Smith, Journalist & TV Presenter

    Aroma:
    Aroma: Chocolatey mocha with walnuts and some vanilla followed by tangerine peel.
    Flavour:
    Flavour: Initial mocha on the palate leads to toffee, hazelnut and spices such as mace with a tangerine peel finish. A true masterpiece at this age.
