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 

CLASSIC (96-100) / HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION
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

Q&A for Brillet Héritage Brut De Fût 45%

Anatoly 2012-09-09

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.
