Absolute wonder of a Cognac, great value!

Recommended 82 /100

I have tasted many Cognacs throughout my life, and I can say, that this one, is one of my personal go-to's, especially given that it All 100% Grande Champagne, the rich soil, and unique subtle flavor, and it truly is demonstrated in lush, supple and an amazing elixir. Package and Bottle appearance is grand, elegant, I always have a proper Snifter ready, and I serve all my Cognac, (at least for me) I serve Neat, room temperature, I normally pour-1.5-2.5oz, and immediate upon pouring it, the noses hints aromas of pear, plum, candied fruit, spices, vanilla, floral, overwhelm the senses, this blend has eaux-die-vie varied around 8-12 years old, and I usually wait and let it sit for minutes (3 minutes for this one) just to truly have the ultimate experience in capturing the art of this beautiful arrangement. Made with Ugni Blanc and Columbard Grapes.The nose isn't overall complex, it is delicate, refined, mouth watering, tilting the glass to reach the palate, Citrus, floral, Oak, vanilla, almond, spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, pear/apple, plum, a hint of floral for a supple, delicate, medium-long finish, this blend is exceptional, it defines a single Terroir, the most renowned premier cru, the dedication of the harvest, the history, and the process of making Cognac, all of the hard work, is demonstrated and reflected in this bottle, and best of all, at a excellent price!! this is a diamond in the rough! I recommend anyone who is into Cognac, to try this!! A great place to start for beginning enthusiasts!

De proeverij

Neus

Welke aroma's ruikt u bij het ruiken van de Cognac? Zijn er tonen van fruit of bloemen - wellicht is hij zoet? Is hij intens of eerder zwak - en het belangrijkste, past de neus bij de smaak en de afdronk? De neus is het belangrijkste onderdeel bij het proeven van Cognac.

Mond

A small sip: Allow your taste buds in the various areas of your mouth to distinguish the different flavours. This part of cognac tasting is described as ‘the palate’. Don’t just swallow it down; allow the liquid to touch all the regions of the mouth. Doing this is necessary as the taste buds pick up contrasting flavours in the different areas of the mouth; on the tip of your tongue to the sides, for example. Take a tiny sip to prep your palate for the sensory experience to come. Take a second larger sip, and gently roll the cognac around, etting it come into contact with every corner of your mouth. Focus on the perceived textural sensations. Are the sensations round and rich or fresh and elegant? Is the overall mouthfeel intense, balanced, disjointed, or lacking presence? In short, how does the cognac feel in your mouth?

Smaak

Quite simply, what do you taste as you gently roll the cognac around in your mouth? Pay close attention to any flavors of fruits, flowers, oak, and spices - or a complex combination of those elements. Are the flavors cohesive with the Nose and the Mouth, giving a sense of balance and complexity?

Afdronk

The ‘finish’ is the experience you get after you’ve swallowed the cognac. What flavours can you detect? Is it a flat or rough finish and rather sharp, or is it a slight 'punch' you like? How long does the finish last? Also think about overall balance: How does the finish compare to nose and taste?

Algehele indruk

Consider the Nose, Mouth, Taste, and Finish simultaneously - the cognac as a whole. Is there cohesion between the four categories, or does the cognac shine in some areas and appear dull in others? Quite simply, is the memory from the tasting experience one that will last your lifetime; is the memory good but nothing extraordinary; or is the cognac’s impact entirely forgettable?
