A Powerful Trip Down Memory Lane From Pasquet
The Pasquet Nostalgie is both a limited-edition Cognac and a delightful trip down memory lane, transporting each connaisseur back to the last decade of the 20th century. Jean’s father, Jean-Luc Pasquet, was feeling nostalgic in his 21st century reality, so decided to blend the best Cognacs from each year during the 1991-2000 period.
Pasquet Nostalgie Limited Edition Cognac is also the last of the blends created by Jean Luc. These vintages were left to mature before finally being assembled in 2008 to become a unique blend in the Extra Cognac age category. Jean-Luc and his son Jean selected a single barrel to be bottled at cask strength to celebrate the 40th birthday of their Cognac house. The Pasquet Maison is the epitome of artisanal production and organic farming. Located in the Premier Cru of Grande Champagne, and headed by Jean and his wife Amy, they continue their precious family traditions in their production of exquisite Cognacs.
This limited run of only 500 bottles has produced a beautifully aromatic Cognac, with a top note of cocoa hovering above powerful, heavier scents of dried apricots, dried figs, prunes, creme-caramel and new leather– an ultimately sensuous, complex experience on the nose. On the palate, a supple entry slowly unfolds to reveal concentrated flavors of ripe stone fruits, dried figs and almond cake followed by tastes of spicy vanilla and cocoa. It feels exceptionally pure on the palate, with a very gentle, warming spirit and impeccable balance. The aftertaste lingers with terrific persistence, drying with flavors of dried banana, creme caramel and cedary oak.
The Pasquet Nostalgie is packaged in a traditional slim bottle, with a simple and chic label balancing nicely with the brandy’s gold, iridescent color. This beautiful blend is best savored neat, and we recommend letting it breathe in the glass for between 10-20 minutes for maximum pleasure.
With lots of poise and powerful nostalgia a-plenty, Pasquet Nostalgie Limited Edition Cognac is the perfect Cognac to share among a tight-knit group of friends as you reminisce about years’ past.

About Pasquet Cognac
Certified organic Cognac house Pasquet perfectly strikes the balance between the warmth of family tradition and innovative savoir-faire. In order to revive a plot of vines during the 1990s, the Pasquet family reached deep into their ancestral history to rediscover its organic farming methods. It was here that they found a beautiful equilibrium not only in the ecosystem of their vines, but also in the Cognacs themselves. Since being awarded ‘Agriculture Biologique’ status in 1998, they haven’t looked back, continuing to craft small-batch Cognacs that epitomize natural beauty and balance. With versatile ranges such as ‘L’Organic’ and ‘Esprit de la Famille,’ the Pasquet family ensures that every step of production respects the environment, resulting in a very special collection of Cognacs.
