Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    Nose:  Quite grapey and vinous initially.  Some sponge cake aromas and a leafiness.  Develops an oaky platform on which ripe raisins, malt loaf & fig syrup take turns to stpe forward.  A littel nervy at first, but settles into quite expansive fruit & wood.

    Palate:  Mediumweight. Ripe and fruity, again on red grapes and raisiny fruitcake.  A pleasant, mellow  mouthfeel.

    Finish:  More syrupy notes as the raisin character intensifies.  Dates.  Quite figgy. Hints of woodspice.

    Comment: A very accessible cognac, delicate and feminine in a very fruit-driven style.

    The "Christmas Pudding" or fruit-cake flavour is the fabled "Rancio" - so prized in the cognac world. Having tasted several Guillon-Painturaud cognacs I can confirm they all exhibit this wonderful property; the older they get the more Rancio you get... Wonderful stuff!

    For the price, this is one of the finest Cognacs on the market - lovely vanilla, soft on the palate, reminds one of Christmas Pudding. Check the Guide Hachette (if you read French) - they RAVE about Guillon-Painturaud.
