Tasting review

Eye: A golden liquid veil, with various hues that dance when the light falls upon it. Reflections of amber and mahogany appear. Its droplets are slow and generous signifying the sheer opulence of this Cognac.

Nose: Intense with aromas of vanilla and delicate brioche, and the second time the rancio comes to the fore with notes of nutmeg. This is the sign of a well-aged Cognac.

Palate: Full bodied, complex and structured. Evolving with stewed fruit aromas of fig and quince, with a hint of honey. A lengthy aromatic persistence comes as a result of its long maturation. The rancio notes emerge and create a harmonious balance to the spicy, exotic and woody notes of the Cognac.

Description

A limited edition Bertrand Hors d'Age Heritage Cognac

Discovering the potential of the eaux-de-vie of this Cognac in the 1960s was what led Raymond Bertrand to preserve them in his cellar for years to come. More than half a century on, and his grandchildren decided to share the legacy by creating the Bertrand Heritage Cognac. Harnessing an incredible amount of savoir-faire, Raymond Bertrand distilled the eaux-de-vie for this wonderful Hors d’Age Cognac over lees, in small wood fired stills of 8 hectoliters. Then aged in red Limousin oak barrels, the result is a single lot series limited to a precious 500 bottles.

Bertrand use the most exclusive Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie, and Ugni Blanc vines planted in the fine, chalk and limestone soil. Despite its name, this is the larger terroir of the Fine Champagne, and produces the finest aromas and flavors thanks to millions of years of fossilization and the maritime climate. 

The Bertrand Heritage arrives in a classic bottle, with a first-rate golden box that will look wonderful on display. It is everything you would expect from a Cognac of this quality.

The Hors d’Age Heritage Cognac is a pure and unfiltered Cognac, that exhibits a wonderful rancio and aroma that can only be found in the best eaux-de-vie of the Charente region. A wild and alluring Cognac. 

The Bertrand Cognac story

The history of Bertrand Cognac dates back to 1731, where they have been working from the Domaine des Brissons de Laage at the heart of the Petite Champagne. The trademark symbol of the estate is the Windmill of Bel’Air which is also the last of the town of Reaux. Surrounded by their vines, this family run estate lives and breathes its history, heritage and quality of its eaux-de-vie.

How to serve the Bertrand Hors d’Age Heritage

This finely matured Cognac has been found to pair beautifully with a Cuban cigar. The terroir from which this Cognac hails draws parallels with the Cuban terroir of Vuelta Abajo, which produces fine cigars. In particular, Bertrand recommend the Siglo VI from the Cohiba range.

The Bertrand Heritage also perfectly complements deer fillet with a hazelnut crust, oyster mushrooms sautéed in hazelnut oil, or for dessert a range of chocolate pastries such as a chocolate finger, praline (feuillantine praliné), and caramel (cœur caramel).

It is best served at around 18 degrees Celsius.
