Eye: Deep amber.

Nose: Aromas of roasted nectarines, ripe apricots and succulent melon inspire the lingering first sip, while orange resin, oak and vanilla give it a mature feel. 

Palate: Beautifully expressing the fruity flavours characteristic of the white wines produced from Charente vines. Ginger, chocolate, orange and oak slowly fade into a finish of dried fruits.

Hine VSOP Rare Fine Champagne Cognac: a Skilful Blend

A terrific VSOP from Hine, Rare is classed as Fine Champagne, meaning that the eaux-de-vie used are all from the Grande or Petite Champagne areas. Around twenty-five distinct eaux-de-vie have been used for the Hine Rare VSOP blend, made from Ugni Blanc grapes from the Grande Champagne (60%) and Petite Champagne (40%) appellations and aged six to twelve years in French Limousin oak barrels.

The history of Hine Cognac starts in the 18th Century, when a young man by the name of Thomas Hine from Dorset arrived in Jarnac to undertake administerial work for a Cognac producer. He soon fell in love with the proprietor’s daughter Françoise-Elisabeth and married into the family. Now the son-in-law of the owner, Thomas was able to take on a senior role and used his financial skills to make major changes, developing trade beyond France. In 1817, he officially changed the name of the company to Thomas Hine & Co. 

These days, the house of Hine focuses only on the Fine Champagne growing areas, overseeing 115 hectares of land by the village of Bonneuil. Vines of Ugni Blanc grapes cover the limestone-studded hills, drawing nutrients and water deep from the chalky soil even during the hottest summers. 

Awards and Accolades

The Hine Rare VSOP was awarded gold medals in 2003 and 2007, and given 93 out of a possible 100 points by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

Presentation of the Bottle

Hine Rare VSOP is packaged in a finely-cut teardrop style decanter with a gold band around the neck. The bottle is topped by a wooden stopper with an image of a deer carved on the top, while an elegant paper label clearly carries the Hine name in their signature red hue. 

How to Enjoy

This rich VSOP Cognac is best enjoyed in a traditional tulip glass as a digestif or late into the evening. It’s the perfect accompaniment for sumptuous chocolate desserts or a hot espresso.

Very Nice

Being relatively new to the world of Cognac, I've found this product to be the best I've had to this point.
It is enjoyed in the evening during our cold Wisconsin fall, winter, and spring months. Drank "clean", with maybe a side dish of Spanish Olives, the only thing missing would be a good Cuban cigar. I've tried some of the more popular name brands (similar price) and have found them to be on the "harsh" side and found myself having to add some water to smooth out harshness. Can't even imagine what a $$$$ of Cognac would be like, but would be up to the task to try some!!


Over Hine Cognac

Gelegen in het hart van de Grande Champagne, het premium wijnbouwgebied van de Cognac regio, produceert het huis Hine al zes generaties lang enkele van de meest exquise Cognacs, toen het nog beter bekend was als T Hine & Co Cognac. Het landgoed heeft een uitzonderlijke 173 hectare aan wijngaarden, en het huis heeft een zeer bijzondere traditie van het produceren van relatief kleine hoeveelheden - maar met een zeer hoge standaard in kwaliteit. Een van hun handelsmerken is het opslaan van hun vintage vaten in vochtige kelders in Bristol, Engeland. Op deze manier doorloopt de Thomas Hine Cognac een uniek ander rijpingsproces door de vochtigheid van de badplaats, die enigszins verschilt van die van de zuidwestelijke kust van Frankrijk. Deze hoog geprijsde vintage flessen worden "Hine Early-Landed Vintage Cognac" genoemd.
