Brillet Héritage Brut De Fût 45% Cognac

Brillet J R Cognac

Brillet Heritage Brut De Fut 45% Cognac is truly a connoisseur's cognac.  This exclusively Grand Cru Brut de Fût is aged half a century in small oak casks, then manually transferred directly to individually-blown bottles at its natural alcohol strength, so it has never been manipulated. Extremely powerful, it is the true expression of a great cognac, embodies the spirit of Grande Champagne, and is the pride of Maison Brillet. Each bottle is numbered.

"A brilliant and inspired Cognac that deserves every star."
- Rated 5 Stars - F. Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal 

Aged for 50 years in oak, then bottled at cask strength. The opening sniff offers subtle traces of marzipan, walnuts, spice cake and dried red fruits; in the second pass, gentle aromas of baked
pears. On entry, elegant, classical flavors of dark caramel and old oak greet the tip of the tongue; the midpalate boasts opulent, vanilla-laden, butter and cream flavors that flourish in graceful harmony. The aftertaste is infinitely long, deeply caramel-like, sweet and spicy. A "complete package" cognac that's worth every penny. Best Buy - Wine Enthusiast

Proud of its family tradition, Brillet Cognac insists that the history is entirely linked to that of cognac. As early on as 1656, Guy Brillet installed his first alembic (the classic still) at his property in the Grande Champagne. This was the introduction of the double distillation process that creates cognac to this day. The Brillets live off their philosophy that things made with care are more valuable, sticking to traditional techniques of production and packaging. Their motto is not to impress through high maintenance or expensive containers, but rather through a humble and high quality aesthetic: a real family business!

Well, I have doubts about condition of cognac I bought.I can start form the exterior. Seal was not broken but, cracked.When I open bottle it was clear that cork start deteriorating. Cork was dumpty, when I squeezed it produced bubbles of air and few drops of liquid. Part of the cork left on the interior.Maybe of cork condition when I sip the cognac I felt smell and taste of old cork.
