Cognac is rarely born of a single eau-de-vie or a single growing area, but generally from a blend of different ages and crus, sometimes up to a hundred of them.
It can be made also exclusively from certain “cru”, for example exclusively from “Grande Champagne”, but of different ages.
Petite Champagne: some 16,000 hectares of clay and a more compact chalky layer of soil. Petit Champagne is very much of the same quality, but a touch lighter. It’s vineyards lie to the south-west and south-east of Grande Champagne.
Amber in colour. The initial nose has soft oak and vanilla. The nose develops to a very elegant ‘rancio’ with delicious dried fruit and nut aromas. The palate is soft and lingering with liquorice and ‘rancio’ flavours.
Light amber in colour. The first nose is characterised by spice and toasted notes. They intensify and are complemented by hints of pastry and confectionary. A very clean elegant palate displays excellent balance and a touch of oak at the finish.
Powerful honey and ripe fruit aroma. It is frank and smooth on the palate, dominated by ginger with a light touch of citrus fruit. Fruity and elegant. “The 1974 cought our attention (…), that kept much of the sunshine but added some intriguing caraway notes”, Wine & Spirits, USA, 2006.
