Nose: Subtle and voluptuous nose.

Eye: Exuberant and wise at the same time, this Cognac offers us a festival of aromas: Violet sweets, jasmine, exotic fruits, English cake, and candied apricots.

Palate: The palate is rich, and gives way to delicacy: Violet, Timut pepper, liquorice and lemon. In the finish, light oxidative and floral notes tending towards white tea, are harmoniously completed by discreet flavors of honey, chestnuts and toasted bread.

Vallein Tercinier Brut de Fût Lot 96 Single Cask Cognac

Vallein Tercinier Brut de Fût Lot 96 Single Cask is an exuberant Fins Bois Cognac offering a variety of zesty aromas that evolve together in harmony. As a limited edition release only 435 bottles have been bottled in 2021 making it all the more exclusive and sought-after. This very old single cask Lot 96 Cognac was aged in a French oak cask where it reaped the benefits of the precious time it spent absorbing the minerals and tannins of the wood. Characterized by dominant nuances of violet (typical of Fins Bois Cognacs), sweet and fruity notes of jasmine, exotic fruits, English cake and candied apricots come to life on the nose. Such sweet aromas are contrasted with punchy notes of Timut pepper, liquorice and lemon that swim across the palate before revealing delicate hints of honey, chestnuts and toasted bread. A truly tantalizing treat for those who can appreciate complex aromatics in Cognac.

The Vallein Tercinier Cognac house has been operating since 1850 and has amassed five generations worth of knowledge surrounding fine-tuned Cognac production. Located in the Saintonge region, this brand now has an extensive collection of Cognacs that shines a spotlight on the family's impressive cellar of eaux-de-vie.

Please note: There have been two bottlings of this Fins Bois Lot 96. The first one was made in June 2021 for 435 bottles from barrel 138 (the product image shows the first bottling). The second bottling was done in November 2021 for 614 bottles from barrel 134. Both bottlings have the same alcohol content and very similar characteristics. The only difference is that the eaux-de-vie from the second bottling has been aged for five more months.

Presentation of the bottle

Vallein Tercinier Brut de Fût Lot 96 Single Cask Cognac arrives in a classic bottle, with the brand’s gold embellished logo stamped on the front of the labelling which presents a simple cream backdrop for the logo and product details. Presentation is key for this family of Cognac makers, and the elegant design work displayed in both the bottle itself and the accompanying gift box reflects the esteemed craftsmanship that goes into making good Cognac. You’ll be sure to want to put this in a place for all to see.

How to enjoy

This Tres Vieux Cognac is best sipped neat at room temperature. Add a few ice cubes to the glass if you’re a more adventurous Cognac drinker as this will alter the tasting experience ever so slightly. Enjoy as the complex array of aromas evolve throughout the tasting one sip at a time. Pair with a fine cigar of your choice to take the tasting up a level.

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.

They've adapted the facilities to take full advantage of modern technology, and continue to produce some very special Cognacs indeed.
