Vintage Cognac is unique since very limited quantities are available. Only a few distillers are wise enough to put aside the good years part of their production to be certified as a specific vintage.
Perfect balance between dried fruits, spices (pepper), hazelnut and some floral notes. Rich and elegant palate with hints of plum and liquorice
Eau-de-Vie with an amber colour and fruity savours, greengage, apricot, with a hint of almond and fine vanilla imparted by the Limousin wood. 42% in alcohol content, this Cognac has a distinct and powerful bouquet whose supple and lingering taste on the palate are the hallmark of Grande Champagne.
Special Reserve Michel Vallet : (Helios decanter)
The hints of linden flowers remain very present whereas the flowers on the vine have almost disappeared. There are dreied flowers and vanilla.
In the mouth : apricot and plum. Not aggressive to the palate but the wood is more perceptible than in the VSOP.
The youngest Cognac in this blend is aged for long time in Limousin oak barrels (including several years in new barrels).
Elegant copper highlights, a lingering bouquet, and a powerful, round flavour make this a very distinguished Cognac. The oaky characteristics and candied fruit flavours coat the palate after the first sip.
