Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Very fresh, with a slight herbal note, accompanied by autumn leaves, fresh figs and vanilla from the oak. Very fresh and 'green', but not stalky.

    Palate: Elegant and fresh, with notes of fresh figs, green apple and a touch of forest floor, then the rich spiciness of the oak arrives, but doesn't dominate.

    Finish: Whistle clean, with the fresh figs and oak perfectly in balance.

    Comment: Incredibly refreshing – if you think that Cognac is only about Christmas-cake spices and heavy wood influence, this will change your mind.

  • Producer's Notes

    Bonneuil 2005 offers a remarkable nose, developing elegant and subtle fragrances of ripe grapes. It reveals aromas of gingerbread, liquorice, combined with light tangy notes supported by peppery spices, lending an oriental touch.

    On the palate, Bonneuil 2005 charms with a generous texture, delightfully fruity and jammy. The lively and candid aromas are enriched with honey and pineapple notes and a hint of clove.

    The very pleasing and lingering finish rounds off the appreciation of the great qualities
    of our 2005 harvest.
