The Hine Vintage 1991 Cognac is a delight from the Grande Champagne terroir of the region. It's a vintage that borrows everything about it - color, structure, and flavor - from one of the most precious woods: mahogany. Harmonious and extremely balanced, it combines the perfection of the year's harvest with delighful aromas and tastes of iris, fresh orange peel, spices, and other fruits.
Youthful in cognac terms (although this is relative - everything is slow when it comes to cognac, as the aging process simply can't be rushed), this vibrancy makes for a cognac that's a real sensory explosion - from it's color right through to the satisfying finish. Hine have let the cognac do the talking, presenting the vintage simply in a traditional style cognac bottle with a classic label.
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”.
