Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
Jean Fillioux Réserve Familiale Sèvre is another Family Reserve cognac from Cognac Fillioux. The blend comes in a Sevres Crystal decanter and presentation box, individually numbered.
So fine, so elegant so complex, so rich, this wonderful cognac is quite lively in spite of its very old ageing - creamy and appetizing, offering some notes of dried and jammy fruit, with the finest rancio aromas, leather, cigar box fragrances, toasted chocolate, liquorice and toffee. Very long finish with notes of honeyed and peppery spices coming through. It’s a journey through the infinite world of the aromas.
A great cognac to meditate. Exceptional.
La Revue du Vin de France ( French Wine Review):
The colour is deep amber with a superb flavor of prune heralding its prestigious origins. Rich on the palate, complex in flavour and graceful in taste, it has a typical flavor of noble rancio cognacs, with its hints of old rum, spices, vanilla, and leather. Years and years of maturity have allowed this cognac to combine all these qualities in a remarkable mix.
Olivier Bompass Gault Millau Review.To go with a Hoyo des Dieux Cigar, we chose a Jean Fillioux, Reserve Familiale Cognac. A pure eau-de-vie, discreet to begin with and revealing its full character afterwards, with the finest rancio aroma, richly flavoured in fruitiness and spice. Two parallel tastes giving a balanced, full-bodied, unctuous sensation, with a distinctive wine-shoot, peppery, and jammy prune flavour. A rich blend of elegance and strength of character.
