The grapes for this blend are grown exclusively in Grande
Champagne, recognized as the premier growing region of Cognac and known for producing fine and delicate eaux-de-vie that have exceptional aging potential, often requiring many years to develop full aromatic richness. After spending one year aging in new oak barrels, the eaux-de-vie are transferred to used oak with medium toast, spending a minimum of 20 years aging prior to blending.
Aroma & Tasting Notes:
Round and long with intense aromas of almond, orange, banana, plum, and dried apricot. Complex finish with hints caramel, truffle, cocoa, apple, saffron, and lilac. Candied-salted hazelnuts, orange blossoms and roasted coffee beans jump out of the glass and linger on the palate. The mouthfeel is rich, balanced with both tannin and acidity.
