Fresh summer cognac

79 /100

I haven't tasted this cognac before, and I have limited experience with this producer.
This is a cognac mainly consisting of distillates from 1999 and 2007. It has been stored in old casks. That is why this cognac is rather bright in color. On the nose, it is rich and almost intense. Orange and some pear are the first tones I notice, thereafter there are some darker tones from nuts and leather. In mouth it is fresh and elegant. But you need large sips to catch the taste. You find spices on the tip of your tongue and some sweeter fruit notes . But you can also taste that this cognac is rather young. The body is short and lacks volume. The finish is also short. It doesn't take long before the taste is all gone. For me this is a good summer cognac, a cognac that I would enjoy on the terrace a late afternoon after spending the day outside. But would I pay 135 euros for such a cognac? I am not sure.

What aromas do you get when you sniff the Cognac? Do you get hints of fruits or flowers - perhaps it's sweet? Is it intense or rather flat - and most importantly, is the nose coherent to taste and finish? The nose is the most important part when tasting Cognac.



A small sip: Allow your taste buds in the various areas of your mouth to distinguish the different flavours. This part of cognac tasting is described as ‘the palate’. Don’t just swallow it down; allow the liquid to touch all the regions of the mouth. Doing this is necessary as the taste buds pick up contrasting flavours in the different areas of the mouth; on the tip of your tongue to the sides, for example. Take a tiny sip to prep your palate for the sensory experience to come. Take a second larger sip, and gently roll the cognac around, etting it come into contact with every corner of your mouth. Focus on the perceived textural sensations. Are the sensations round and rich or fresh and elegant? Is the overall mouthfeel intense, balanced, disjointed, or lacking presence? In short, how does the cognac feel in your mouth?



Quite simply, what do you taste as you gently roll the cognac around in your mouth? Pay close attention to any flavors of fruits, flowers, oak, and spices - or a complex combination of those elements. Are the flavors cohesive with the Nose and the Mouth, giving a sense of balance and complexity?



The ‘finish’ is the experience you get after you’ve swallowed the cognac. What flavours can you detect? Is it a flat or rough finish and rather sharp, or is it a slight 'punch' you like? How long does the finish last? Also think about overall balance: How does the finish compare to nose and taste?


Overall Impression

Consider the Nose, Mouth, Taste, and Finish simultaneously - the cognac as a whole. Is there cohesion between the four categories, or does the cognac shine in some areas and appear dull in others? Quite simply, is the memory from the tasting experience one that will last your lifetime; is the memory good but nothing extraordinary; or is the cognac’s impact entirely forgettable?
