Growth area & soil: Fins Bois
A Hors d’Age Cognac from the 1940s
For a spirit that embodies everything there is that is good about a well-aged, quality Cognac, look no further than the Vallein Tercinier Trés Vieux Fins Bois. Dating back to the 1940s, it exemplifies the sheer treasures that are contained in the cellar of this family estate. Derived from a single barrel, this Hors d’Age Cognac has been specially selected by the Cellar Master. The largest of the growth areas is the origin of this fine Tres Vieux Cognac. The soil contains smaller areas of chalk that are less porous than other crus, but produces eaux-de-vie that are full-bodied, supple and fruity. A single barrel offering of this caliber is bound to have you in raptures. It is bottled with order, and aged in the finest French oak casks. It goes on to be slowly reduced, over an ambient temperature and lightly filtered.
