Tasting review

Eye: Very dark amber - naturally so.

Nose: Violet, light flower petals, crème brûlée, and dried tobacco.

Palate: An explosion of rancio like no other. A Cognac for a true connoisseur, but certainly worth it. The concentration of nutty, cocoa and earthy notes is incredible. An undiluted taste experience, with rich savory flavors.

Description

The Unfiltered Masterpiece: Navarre Vieille Réserve Cognac Navarre Cognac

is the producer on everybody’s lips - and with good reason. The Navarre Brut de Fût Vieille Réserve Grande Champagne Cognac is something of mastery. A blend of eaux-de-vie from the prestigious Premier Cru aged between 35 and 50 years old, it has undergone a particular process unlike most Cognacs: that is non-chill filtered, nor colored or boiséd. It is as it is, straight from the cask.

Jacky Navarre is a fourth generation distiller, and grows grapes on his eleven-acre estate in Gondeville. He is a master of distillation, and uses no water - he simply allows his Cognacs to reduce by natural evaporation.

This Vieille Réserve comes from the Grande Champagne, and has been distilled in his 30hl Charentais pot still. It is artisanal craft at its finest. The blend is made up of approximately 10% barrels from 1965, 40% from 1970-1975 and 50% 1978-1079. This is the real deal of Cognac prowess.

Navarre is one of the last purists of his kind, and the barrels are oxidized by the humidity of his cellar alone. Allowing nature to do the work, he produces Cognacs such as the Grande Champagne Vieille Reserve with an incredible depth of aromas, and undeniable rancio.

About Navarre Cognac

You could consider Jacky Navarre, fourth generation distiller of Cognac Navarre, to be one of the last remaining “purists” of his kind. Distilling from the eleven-acre estate in Gondeville of the Grande Champagne, he hand-harvests his fruit - a true artisanal method that is nowadays rare to find. This ancient Cognac house crafts truly traditional Cognac, with an average of 40-50 years for one blend alone. Amazingly, the Cognacs that emerge from this house have no water added - the barrels are oxidized over a long period by the humidity of the cellar alone. The result is a Cognac of unrivaled quality, aroma and depth. His rule is simple - “let nature do most of the work” and the rest will come.
