Description

Hine 2006 Mini Bottle Bonneuil Estate Grande Champagne Cognac

Hine 2006 Bonneuil Estate Grande Champagne Cognac is a single cru, unblended delight from the harvest of 2006. Produced in the heart of the Grande Champagne terroir, this Cognac provides a pure expression of the premier cru’s chalky soils, of which the vines draw their unique identity. Characterized by a profile rich in elegance and finesse, it is a smooth yet complex Cognac revealing fresh notes of honeyed lychees, soft nougat, toasted bread, and mirabelle plum tart.

From vintage blends, to single lot offerings, Cognacs produced by Hine share the same attributes of delicacy, vivacity and finesse. Single vintages have been a signature of the brand for decades. Each vintage is a liquid snapshot that captures the essence of a particular year, echoing the elaboration of fine wines and Champagnes. Matching such high standards is only possible in years when nature provides optimal conditions for the growth of exceptional quality vines of which the best grapes can be selected from.

With the traditional vintage Cognacs becoming close to extinction, the house of Hine remain proud guardians of the casks and demijohns. Therefore the brand takes pride and responsibility when it comes to aging such serene vintage Cognacs under the floorboards of the Hine Estate - just a stone’s throw away from the epicentre of Cognac; Charente.

Presentation of the bottle

Housed in a 5cl bottle, Hine Bonneuil 2006 is the perfect gift to a Cognac enthusiast who marvels in tasting new vintage editions. Unveiling a long neck and a heavy base, its presentation accentuates the air of elegance of the nectar contained inside. Showcasing the pale yellow gold color of the Cognac, the bottle appears as a mini version of the timeless and traditional style Cognac bottle that continues to be favored year after year. A true gem of the Grande Champagne and delicious accompaniment to an evening with guests.

How to enjoy

Hine recommends a more adventurous approach when it comes to tasting Bonneuil 2006 Cognac - for instance, ideal food pairings include; frappe with oysters, with veal tartare, or with a plate of Pata Negra ham. Best served neat or on the rocks - this Cognac is a remarkable offering, and one that's ideally suited for the holiday season.

I absolutely am a fan of HINE's new single estate vintages

When HINE's Per Even showed me their new vintage editions I instantly fell in love. This is why we though it was the best choice for selecting this rare mini bottle as a gift for the holiday season 2017.


About Hine Cognac

Located in the heart of the Grande Champagne, the premium wine growing area of the Cognac region, the house of Hine has been producing some of the most exquisite Cognacs for six generations, when it was better known as T Hine & Co Cognac. The estate boasts an exceptional 173 acres of vineyards, and the house has a very special tradition of producing relatively small quantities - but with a very high standard in quality. One of their trademarks is to store their vintage casks in damp cellars in Bristol, England. This way, the Thomas Hine Cognac goes through a uniquely different ageing process due to the humidity of the seaside town, which differs somewhat to that of the southwestern coast of France. These highly priced vintage bottles are called “Hine Early-Landed Vintage Cognac”.
