A Vallein Tercinier Fine Champagne Cognac
The Vallein Tercinier Hors d'Age Cognac really needs to be tasted to be believed, as it boasts ultra-premium level quality, surprisingly however, without the ultra-premium price tag to match. This affordable blend of both Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie is an award winning offering - from a house that takes true pride in its small, but simply sublime range of brandy and spirits.
A beautifully balanced blend that has been created from over 20 different eaux-de-vie, the youngest of which has spent a minimum of four decades whiling away in oak barrels, during which time Mother Nature worked her magic.
The house of Vallein Tercinier are a proud family of cellarmasters that have benefitted from five generations of wisdom, expertise and the all-important secrets behind producing some of the very best eaux-de-vie of the Champagne region.
Presentation of the bottle
It’s presented in a simplistic, traditional style bottle, proving once and for all that you don't need bells and whistles to advertise an extraordinary taste experience - all you need is an outstanding Cognac. Embodying extra fine quality, its delicious deep golden copper colouring adds a luxurious finishing touch to this bottle, which also comes boxed in a wooden case for storage.
How to enjoy
As this is a very old Hors d’Age Cognac, it is best enjoyed neat. However, for those who are open to a more adventurous tasting experience - the spicy notes and silky finish of this Cognac also pair perfectly with an equally rich piece of dark chocolate.

Fruity Price-Quality King
A really great entry point for a Whisky drinker to start into Cognac. So wonderful and drinkable with tons of fruits. The nose isn’t the most expressive, but nice fruity and floral. The 42 abv are matching, although the mouthfeel is a little thin. The palate has great exotic and stone fruits. Great,...
Great value - Hors d´Age Cognac Vallein Tercinier
The colour is a deep amber with golden reflexes. On the nose (over) ripe apricots, stewed fruits, oranges, vanilla, freshness of mint, herbal tea, decent rancio - a rather complex and fine nose. The palate is a mix of ripe orchard fruits, exotic fruits (mangos), fine raisins, honey and refreshing...
Vallein Tercinier Hors d'Age Cognac
Nose: Emphatic and powerful, on stewed stone fruit, some apricot, tangerine, maybe mango ; Then eucalyptus and spices, cinnamon, vanilla, complex. Palate: Definitely more on spices first, peppery, cinnamon and nutmeg, woody as well ; Then it becomes syrupy, with honey, raisins, melon, orange blossom...
A great cognac!! Especially for the price… not quite in line with Courvoisier 21 (my benchmark for under 400) but wonderful notes of rancio and candied fruit!! A must for a collector… a touch sweet, but great after taste with a decent length…
