Hine Millesime 1984 Early Landed Cognac is an exceptionally aromatic cognac with an extraordinary mature bouquet. 1984 was an excellent grape harvest - not only that, but the wines were sent to be aged in Bristol in the UK (this is what is meant by the term 'early landed'. The damp, humid cellars here allow the eaux-de-vies to develop in a unique manner, before being returned to Hine for bottling.
On the palate it gives hints of tobacco leaf, leather, and chocolate shavings. A delightful and full bodied cognac.
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”.
