Les Trésors de La Gabare
“Dark colour, very sweet and mature nose, dried fruits, prunes, sweet chocolate pralines and some hints of dried flowers, very complex, the palate has good bite, very distinct, an aged sweetness, leather and nutty aromas, really long and rich aftertaste, complex”, Andreas Larsson, 2008.

A venerable Grande Champagne from the HINE family’s private reserves, proudly and sparingly released in a strictly limited number of bottles each year to be enjoyed by connoisseurs of truly exceptional cognacs.
With his roots firmly planted in the pure, time-honoured tradition of his ancestors, a man content in the shadows and a conjuror of magical aromas, Pascal will be happy to welcome you into his cellars where you can discover and share his Collection Privée.
The original feature of this Grande Champagne, until very recently strictly reserved for members of the family and their guests, is that it is not a blend, but an eau-de-vie from a single barrel and from a single estate.
Collection Cognac – Artisan Vintage
Same origin and history as the 1944 FINS BOIS. The feminine softness of the Grande Champagne area is confirmed here. Give it time to reveal itself; you will discover a delicate union between the stripped tannins of its roughness and the refinement of the flavours of the cognac.
Rough from cask.
For each exceptional year, HINE sets aside casks specifically for vintages.
They are aged in 18th century cellars in Jarnac under two locks and keys - one belonging to HINE and the other kept by the Cognac authorities.
François Voyer cognacs are selected by the finest restaurants (Alain Ducasse, Lucas Carton, Laurent...)
If you are wise enough to taste it slowly leaving it time enough to unfold in the glass this Cognac will reward you with inimitable aromas of truffles, wood berries, and delicate accents of pepper and vanilla.
