Nose: Very good first impression, very lively, surprising for a cognac so old
1. Notes of dried roses and poppies
2. Fruity notes of coconut, passionflower, quince
3. Woody notes of sandalwood & cedar
4. Finally, in the empty glass, balsamic and nutmeg
Palate: Cognac that remains full of vigor, a great deal of ‘fattiness’ (physical sensation of a thick liquid on the palette coming from concentration through evaporation over the years) and mellowness. Exceptional length; Magnificent elegance; Very distinct.
