Origin : White wine, richer, stronger, more aromatic.
Visual : Fine Gold.
The nose : Warmer, balanced, floral vanilla from the wood, white flowers (rose, jasmine, lilies).
The taste : Warm and rich on the first part of the palate, silky on the tongue, velvet on the throat, deep in the stomach with a honeysuckle and lime tree flowers finish.
Matching : Perfect for the hunting season with game meat, and also after great American steak, tender red wines.
Features : Cognac lovers will love this cognac that reminds them of their traditional brand but with much more elegance, far deeper finish, more complexity in an un-caramalised world. Pure vintage, strictly no additives, aged in un-toasted extra fine grain French oak casks, never chill-filtered.
Distiller's note : "Our cellar master's favourite cognac."
One should approach cognac with wisdom: first choose the glass, avoid the snifter or cognac baloon, it will bring you too much alcohol. Preferably choose a tulip glass or a simple white wine glass, the straighter the glass, the thinner, the sharper its edge the better.
Please do not warm the glass, here again you will receive too much alcohol. Swirl the cognac three times in the glass. In so doing you lay a film inside that will, by oxidation, give you the full bouquet of the spirit. Watch the droplets , sign of richness, let the cognac breathe, lift the glass to your nose with little strokes , remove it again so as to let your nose adjust and progressively discover the aromas.
Crash a drop between your lips to prepare your palate, serve a small quantity but as often as you wish.
