Mahogany in colour, with a nose of sweet roses combining with rich and complex aromas - we detected some wonderful fruits and spices. An intense note of rancio.
I never took notice of this cognac, what a mistake! I somehow memorized that the Gautier line wasn't great but I was wrong. This hors d'age comes at a great price, in a beautiful low key bottle. Absolutely surprising to me, I will purchase a second bottle for sure
