With a history dating back to the mid-1800s, cognac Maxime Trijol not only produces eaux-de-vie from its own vineyards, but also purchases wine from other producers as well to be able to distil higher quantities. Five generations of family have kept the traditional methods of cognac production alive and well, and today they oversee every part of the cognac production. Because the estate purchases other distillers’ wine, they are able to produce a wide range of cognacs from a variety of growing areas in the Cognac region.
Tasting review by Jean Fillioux:
Eye: Old gold color
Nose: Sweet and spicy, with notes of almond and marzipan
Palate: Flavors of dried fruit, walnut, and dates. Long finish, with spicy notes continuing to evolve
