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.
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.
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.
Le Cognac is dedicated to further the presence of the small Cognac Houses in the global market. It is present in the USA through its participation in Cognac Inc, a licensed importer of high-end Cognacs and animates Club Cognac, a worldwide network of Cognac lovers and sommeliers.
