Eye: Dark amber.

Nose: Dating back to the 40s, it has earthy aromas of mushroom and undergrowth. A complex nose; you will notice hints of orange and almond, and a fine rancio.

Palate: Full bodied, enhanced with notes of coffee and licorice. The finale is silky, and you will finish with a final note of vanilla, after experiencing sweet notes of cocoa and fruit.

Description

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.

Presentation of this Cognac 

The Vallein Tercinier Tres Vieux Fins Bois is presented in a regular bottle, with a cream traditional labeling. The burgundy wax seal, typical of Cognacs from this house is on the side of the bottle. It also arrives in a wooden box, which will look wonderful displayed in your drinks cabinet. The address of the estate is also etched on to the box, giving it a localized feel; it is truly a small scale, artisanal house.

About Vallein Tercinier Cognac

With over 500 years of history, the artisan house of Vallein Tercinier is one that deserves the attention of all Cognac lovers – from those new to eaux-de-vie to the connoisseur. This brother and sister team bring an expertise to craft Cognac that's just aching to be discovered.

Many of their Cognac's have been awarded top class awards in many industry competitions, and this has meant a growing awareness of their products in some quarters. But, as with the aging process of Cognac, such a small craft brand is often lost amongst the noise razzmatazz of the 'big boys'. And that really is a crime, because as many esteemed connoiseurs are finding out, the offerings of Vallein Tercinier are of superb quality, unique, and once you've discovered them, will become a 'must have' brand to always have in your drinks cabinet.

Catherine and Louis are very proud to have stepped into the shoes of their many ancestors. And as is in keeping with family tradition, the've continued to move the company forward, whilst remaining true to the pure art of Cognac production. They've adapted the facilities to take full advantage of modern technology, and continue to produce some very special Cognacs indeed.
