With Eaux-de-Vie aged between 16 and 24 years old this well-matured cognac has been seasoned for a generation in older, seasoned, casks which help to develop its aromas and rancio character. Patrick Drouet rather coyly describes it thus; “This cognac of a certain age is ample and delicate. It is smooth, presenting some notes of rancio.” It is certainly well matured, sophisticated, intriguing and well worth discovering to the full.Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Tim F
Upfront gingerbread & spongecake aromas - plus cocoa powder, icing sugar etc. Toffee apple and furniture polish lurking behind. Faint hint of liquorice emerging, apple peel, some dried orange peel, mocha, hot-buttered white toast. In a word: Heavenly.
Smooth as a silk scarf and yet somehow every drop is totally packed with flavour without a single element dominating. Silky tannins, ripe fruit, sweet spices (and a lot else besides) all harmonise in waves of beautifully-nuanced flavours.
Long, sweet and almost indecently sensual. A come-to-bed cognac.
Pulling off a massive flavour impact with every single element both well-defined and perfectly-integrated into the whole is probably the hardest task of a blender. Yet somehow this house seems to achieve it effortlessly.
