Brillet Hors d'Age Grande Champagne Cognac is single estate cognac from Grande Champagne terroir. Aged in old oak barrels for more than a generation, then transferred to new barrels before bottling, this super cognac is wonderfully soft with a subtle taste of rancio.
A medium dark amber in color, with a perfume of vine flowers and dried lime blossom. Soft and smooth with vanilla notes and a very aromatic end. Presented in a tradtionally shaped cognac bottle within a wooden presentation box.
Warning: Last items in stock!
Strong rancio notes, some vanilla on the palate, flowers on the nose - long and persistent finish.
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!
