Hine 1976 Millesime Cognac

Hine Cognac

When the harvest proves to be an expectional one, Hine Cognac sets asides casks of eaux-de-vie specifically for vintages.  The year 1976 was one such year, and the Hine 1976 Millesime Cognac is the result.  Each cask has been securely stored and aged in Hine's 18th century cellars - and secured by not one, but two locks.  One of the locks was owned by Hine, and the other by the Cognac authorities...

The 1976 Millesime is a very dark cognac, and one that has heightened tastes of fruit, thanks toa n exceptionally ripe harvest.  A great cognac for the connoisseur, and one that was awarded the Silver Medal in the 2006 International Wine & Spirit Competition.

Characteristics : quince jelly, green pepper corns.

Located in the heart of the Grande Champagne, the premium wine growing area of the Cognac region, the house of Hine produces one of the most exquisite cognacs since six generations. The estate boasts an exceptional 173 acres of vineyards. The house has a very special tradition of producing relatively small quantities but with a very high standard in quality. One of their trademarks is to store their vintage casks in cellars in Bristol, England. This way, the cognac goes through a uniquely different ageing process due to the humidity of the seaside town. These highly priced vintage bottles are called “Hine Early-Landed Vintage Cognac”.
