Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
The Estève Très Vieille Réserve de la Famille Cognac is a Petite Champagne blend, and consists of harmonic eaux-de-vie that have each been aged for around 35 years. It has a wonderful orange tone with bronze and copper highlights, a beautiful nose that's truly distinctive, combining prune, spices, orange peel, and dried flowers. The palate develops these aromas and moves onto a finish of remarkable length.
A distinguished cognac of a very high level.
