A Fine Hors d’Age Grande Champagne Cognac
A Hors d’Age Cognac of this quality is certainly worth the wait. Biding its time in oak barrels and developing a fabulous complexity for which many Grande Champagne Cognacs are famous, the Charpentron Hors d’Age No 35 Cognac is a fine spirit aged for decades. The lengthy ageing process is key to creating such a fine blend. The tannins of the French oak casks are the key to its woody aroma.
The Grande Champagne terroir is known as the Premier Cru, and for good reason. Thanks to millions of years of fossilization and the maritime climate, the soil is particularly chalky with a limestone sublayer. The result is a very fine Cognac, thanks to the easy drainage and optimal exposure to the sun.
