Petite Champagne |
0,70 L |
This vintage Cognac comes from a family of winegrowers in the region of Gémozac, Charente-Maritime, owners of an estate in Petite Champagne. The family produce cereals and also owns vineyards, which are nowadays organically farmed. Their vines grow on chalky soils. I bought this batch from one of the sons, that his father had produced 40 years before. It was originally a batch of several 559 litre barrels, which were stocked in the dry cellars of the ORECO until they were transferred to our cellars.
Old gold colour. Spicy nose, complex. The attack is supple and creamy, with intense notes of black pepper, exotic wood. On the palate, there is a certain aromatic density, chocolate, clover, candied fruits. Lengthy and spicy finish, quite mineral. An unusual Cognac, already very old.
