Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
Hine Millesime 1975 Early Landed Cognac is one of a selection of vintage cognacs created from harvests in exceptional years. 1975 was one of these years. The 'Early Landed' reference means that the casks were sent to Bristol, UK, to be aged in the damp and humid cellars there, before being returned to Cognac. This has a massive influence on the aging process making for a unique flavored cognac.
An elegant and round vintage, this is the creation of a grape harvest from a very hot summer. Expect a wonderful volume and depth, with aromas of exotic fruits, hazelnuts, and soft oak wood. A wonderful cognac to have in your cabinet...
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”.
