Eye: Antique amber with mahogany reflections. 

Nose: An abundance of florals instantly rises from the glass, eventually giving way to old oak, leather, rancio and tobacco leaf.

Palate: The flavors are very concentrated, rich and decadent on a level that cannot be compared even with 40 and 50-year-old expressions. The long finish is rich with mature notes of rancio.

Description

Famille Estève Plénitude Cognac

Famille Estève Plénitude Cognac is a truly rare release of old Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie.  The oldest expression ever released by the House of Estève, Plénitude is a homage to François  Adrien Hitier, born in 1858, who was the first member of the family to become an awarded artist of distillation. This was evidenced by the gold medal he won at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1900 for the excellence of his Cognacs.

Made from pre-Phylloxera grapes harvested in the 1800s, the eaux-de-vie used to create this very limited edition were distilled by the current owner’s great-grandfather on the family estate more than 150 years ago. This was originally aged in French oak before being transferred to demijohns to be carefully preserved from generation to generation. In the end, there was only enough liquid for 480 bottles to be produced. 

The House of Estève mainly focuses on products from the Petite Champagne region, where they own and manage 45 hectares of Ugni Blanc grapevines. The property is situated in the municipality of Celles in Charente-Maritime, where the seventh generation of the family now produces a range of Cognac that is composed mainly of older eaux-de-vie.

Presentation of the Bottle

This Hors d’Age Cognac comes in a classically elegant slim bottle, with a deep punt, a silver label featuring calligraphy text and matching silver foil. Each bottle is individually numbered. The matching presentation box makes this a great gift for any Cognac connoisseur.

How to Enjoy Famille Estève Plénitude Cognac

Rare old Cognacs like this deserve attention: pour gently into a tulip glass and let it rest for 30 seconds before taking a sip. To allow the aromas to open up further, a small dash of mineral water could be added.
