Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Jacques Denis Vieille Reserve Cognac is a limited edition, truly old quality cognac. Created from Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie that was harvested way back in the 1950s and 1960s - the opportunity to taste this this is truly a step back into the portals of time.
The dark golden color is tantamount to the decades that this cognac has spent aging in oak barrels. And this time has allowed the cognac to naturally increase in volume to 44%, creating a powerful - yet somehow subtle - compexity of aromas that reveal the special characteristics of the soil of the Grande Champagne terroir.
When I opened the bottle of Jacques Denis Vieille Reserve Cognac on a night when I was at home alone, an unpronounceable aroma poured out of my room.
A gingerbread chocolate flavour that I haven't experienced for a long time and an unidentified woody note that fills the nose and is very relaxing.
Take a sip of Cognac. It's rare for the mouth to acquire a round, sweet palate, with a lingering aftertaste of chocolate and honey, and a final revelation of woody notes to remind you of the elegance of this liquid.
A good cognac, to be admired!
Thanks to the Cognac-expert team for the pleasures
