Heady, floral notes of jasmine and honeysuckle. Spice and zest of orange reveal its Grande Champagne cognac terroir; a hint of rancio, dried apricot and hazelnut bear witness of long years of ageing.
Deep old gold in colour.
The nose epitomises Cognac having been aged for a prolonged period with a panoply of spicey and cigar-box aromas. With time oakier notes appear and damp leafy humus with a hint of forest mushroom.
The palate is long and spicy with honey and a slightly dry finish typical of such venerable Cognac.
A blend of very old Grande Champagne Cognacs who have reached full maturity after ageing in oak barrels. Discreet at first, this superior Cognac then unceasingly reveals new sets of aromas to the discerning nose.
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.
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.
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.
