Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
Hine Millesime Vintage 1982 Cognac is one of a range by Hine that are created from exceptional years of harvest - and 1982 was one of those years. A Grande Champagne cognac, it's bright in color, with aromas of flowers and fruit that move into a melange of preserved fruits, raisins, and dried figs on the palate.
Each cask was set aside and aged under lock and key - both by Hine and the Cognac authorities - before the time came to be bottled. A wonderfully balanced cognac - and one that will delight both cognac connoisseurs and the pleasure drinkers in equal measures.
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”.
