Sweet and Spice Make Everything Nice in Pasquet’s Très Vieille Réserve
The Pasquet Très Vieille Réserve Grande Champagne Cognac is a wonderful old Cognac that promises to take every debutant and connaisseur alike on a rich sensory journey. Made solely from Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, novices need look no further for a prime example of why this is the most sought after terroir of the entire Cognac region. This Cognac is an Hors d’Age blend, in which the youngest eau-de-vie is from 1974 and the oldest unknown– a guarantee that this offering boasts powerful, deep flavors only afforded to old Cognacs that have spent long periods of time in the cellars.
Jean Luc Pasquet is the house behind this beautiful brandy. A leader in organic cognac production, Pasquet’s vineyard has a history that dates all the way back to 1730. In the 1990s, after 22 years of conventional practice by Jean-Luc Pasquet, a pivot was made towards an organic future, and the house was awarded ‘Agriculture Biologique’ status in 1998. Their core mission is to craft small-batch organic Cognacs that epitomize natural beauty and balance.
On the nose, Pasquet Très Vieille Réserve Grande Champagne Cognac arrives with nice notes of white-fleshed fruit, citrus and cocoa; once allowed to breathe, hints of liquorice and pepper emerge. Forceful on the palate, the flavor of white fruit reemerges stronger than ever, before highly developed tastes of liquorice, roasted coffee and pepper join the party. The experience on the palate is long and utterly satisfying in its balance and complexity.
A rich amber in color with touches of mahogany and gold, Pasquet Très Vieille Réserve Grande Champagne Cognac is presented in an elegant, classic cognacaise bottle with a classy label to match. The label’s handwritten-style type gives it the homely, natural touch the house fosters so well.
The perfect Cognac to take your time with, this blend is patiently waiting to be enjoyed; all a Cognac connoisseur need do is accept its invitation.
Beautiful Hors d'Age at crazy low price
Wow, a fantastic nose. I must admit the palate is slightly masculine but again the finish is great great great. And people, this is a Hors dage so that means it's "out of age".. too old to be qualified as a XO or extra. If you love small producers in the Grande Champagne heart region of cognac.. try this one.
About Pasquet Cognac
Certified organic Cognac house Pasquet perfectly strikes the balance between the warmth of family tradition and innovative savoir-faire. In order to revive a plot of vines during the 1990s, the Pasquet family reached deep into their ancestral history to rediscover its organic farming methods. It was here that they found a beautiful equilibrium not only in the ecosystem of their vines, but also in the Cognacs themselves. Since being awarded ‘Agriculture Biologique’ status in 1998, they haven’t looked back, continuing to craft small-batch Cognacs that epitomize natural beauty and balance. With versatile ranges such as ‘L’Organic’ and ‘Esprit de la Famille,’ the Pasquet family ensures that every step of production respects the environment, resulting in a very special collection of Cognacs.
