A Famille Esteve Masterpiece:
Heritage Cognac is the pride and joy of the house of Famille Esteve and made up of some of the rarest eaux-de-vie known to the Esteve Cognac estate. It is the emblem of exceptional eaux-de-vie combined with the know-how of the talented Cellar-Master. By taking the oldest eaux-de-vie, distilled by the family’s ancestors, the generations who now front Maison Esteve have been able to curate something really quite special. As its name suggests, this Cognac is a tribute to the heritage of the Esteve estate and generations of hard work and dedication.
The blend consists exclusively of rare Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie and offers a bold aromatic complexity with distinct aromas of incense, eucalyptus and sandalwood. Alongside, tasting notes of pineapple, prune, citrus, ginger, vanilla and wood swim across the palate.
The Esteve family estate stretches over 45 hectares of vineyards within the prestigious Petite Champagne region. Together, the family works meticulously to ensure heritage and traditions stay alive, year in year out. Now, with seven generations under their belts, the Estave family are experts in distilling their own wine in order to make fine and flavorful Cognac for the pleasure of Cognac enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike.
Presentation of the bottle
This precious jewel of a Cognac embodies luxury from both inside and outside. With its soft curves and heavy base, the decanter is somewhat ressemblant of a stylish perfume bottle. The Cognac’s shining copper coloring and reflective gold hues glisten in the light and draw the eye closer to the opulent, gold swirls of the typography labelling the bottle. This luxurious bottle arrives with an equally elegant, walnut colored box, making Heritage a fine choice, when gifting Cognac to someone special.
How to enjoy
Savour Esteve Heritage down to every last drop by drinking it neat or on the rocks. With its great aromatic complexity, absorb the rare tasting experience it offers, in the right setting, amongst the right people. The fruity fragrances of Heritage pair perfectly with a sweet course. This Cognac will not disappoint when served alongside a tangy fruit tart for example, as a fruit dessert will only accentuate the citrus flavors of this Cognac even further.
