Eye: Radiant with hues from amber to mahogany

Nose: Intense and complex, ever-evolving, the very definition of rancio. Notes of concentrated fruit and floral aromas prevail first, followed by nuances of baking spices with subtle woody notes underneath. Next, the aromas lead into hints of lightly toasted brioche with apricot preserves and vanilla bean, alongside fragrances of delicate walnut cake with candied orange and nutmeg.

Palate: Full and structured, with a strong rancio throughout the tasting. It is a Cognac that is light on the palate yet incredibly complex. First notes of stewed fruit flourish alongside spicy notes across the mid-palate. The peak of spice gives way to concentrated fruit with notes of honey, baking spices, and hints of citrus. The finish is warm and enduring with lingering nuances of fruit and citrus flavors.

Description

Bertrand Heritage Limited Edition N°2 Cognac

Bertrand Heritage Limited Edition N° 2 Cognac is a 100% Petite Champagne Hors d’Age offering from the long-treasured “Heritage” lot of Simone and Raymond Bertrand, the grandparents of Therese and Samuel who are today’s generation at the Domaine des Brissons de Laage. Simone and Raymond both grew up in the Petite Champagne region of Cognac and separately learned the ways of Cognac production from their families. Simone grew up at the Domaine des Brissons, where her father taught her, while Raymond’s family has been in Reaux since 1731, with a windmill and vines at the Domaine de Laage. So naturally, when Simone and Raymond married in 1948, they combined the two domains into one, forming the Domaine des Brissons de Laage.

The eaux-de-vie produced during the first ten years of Simone and Raymond’s time together at the Domaine was heated on small (8 hectoliters) wood-fired stills that have since been lost to the ages. When they first started working in collaboration, they selected one particular Petite Champagne lot and set it aside in the 1960s to undergo a long and special maturation process in ‘red’ casks. This eau-de-vie was left untouched for more than half a century and stands proud in representing the heritage of Simone and Raymond, passed down to their grandchildren, Therese and Samuel – the current successors of the family brand.

The “Heritage” lot is long recognized by the family as an eau-de-vie of exceptional quality as well as years of patience and acquired know-how. With the first bottling of this treasured eau-de-vie taking place as “500 Heritage Cognac” back in December 2018, Bertrand Heritage Limited Edition N° 2 Cognac is the second bottling of the same Cognac, from the original lot but with three additional years of aging –​​ making it even more special than it was before.

How to enjoy

Boasting such an extensive history and heritage allows this Cognac to stand proud as a truly one-of-a-kind and sought after offering. And with such outstanding quality, alongside an incredibly complex set of tasting notes, it is safe to say it is a Cognac that should be sipped and savored from your best tulip glass –​​ neat at room temperature.
