Tasting review by Hine Cognac:

Jubilant citrus tones yield to the softer redolent aroma of acacia. Tangy cherry nuances present a youth still burning with adventure, tempered by the sharp notes of yellow-fleshed grapefruit.

Description

Hine Millesime 1988 Cognac

The Hine Millesime 1988 Cognac is a vintage Grande Champagne delight. The house of Hine has always specialized in bringing only the best vintages to market, and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint. Optimum growth conditions in the seasons leading up to the 1988 harvest meant an exceptional year for premier cru Cognacs. Millesime 1988 showcases exactly how the aromas and flavors of various fruits really come to the fore thanks, to the magic of the Grande Champagne chalky soils.

From vintage blends, to single plot offerings, Cognacs produced by Hine share the same attributes of delicacy, vivacity and finesse. Single vintages have been a signature of the brand for decades. Each vintage is a liquid snapshot that captures the essence of a particular year, echoing the elaboration of fine wines and Champagnes. Matching such high standards is only possible in years when nature provides optimal conditions for the growth of exceptional quality vines of which the best grapes can be selected from.

With the traditional vintage Cognacs becoming close to extinction, the house of Hine remain proud guardians of the casks and demijohns. Therefore the brand takes pride and responsibility when it comes to aging such serene vintage Cognacs under the floorboards of the Hine Estate - just a stone’s throw away from the epicentre of Cognac; Charente.

Presentation of the bottle

Slender and sleek, the Hine Millesime 1988 Cognac’s bottle design is as luxurious as the Cognac it houses. Its beautifully shiny bronze colouring embodies the supple flavourings and exceptional quality that is contained inside the bottle. The classic and timeless design of the decanter means it would sit nicely alongside others in your collection. Arriving with a contemporary presentation sleeve, it is the perfect present for a Cognac lover or connoisseur.

How to enjoy

Having found its alcohol content naturally over time, this vintage Cognac contains unparalleled elegance and infinite depth that should be enjoyed one sip at a time. Drink neat from a tulip glass, as the narrow top of this type of glass will delicately distribute the arrival of aromas during the tasting.

About Hine Cognac

Located in the heart of the Grande Champagne, the premium wine growing area of the Cognac region, the house of Hine has been producing some of the most exquisite Cognacs for six generations, when it was better known as T Hine & Co Cognac. The estate boasts an exceptional 173 acres of vineyards, and 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 damp cellars in Bristol, England. This way, the Thomas Hine Cognac goes through a uniquely different ageing process due to the humidity of the seaside town, which differs somewhat to that of the southwestern coast of France. These highly priced vintage bottles are called “Hine Early-Landed Vintage Cognac”.
