With a history dating back to the mid-1800s, cognac Maxime Trijol not only produces eaux-de-vie from its own vineyards, but also purchases wine from other producers as well to be able to distil higher quantities. Five generations of family have kept the traditional methods of cognac production alive and well, and today they oversee every part of the cognac production. Because the estate purchases other distillers’ wine, they are able to produce a wide range of cognacs from a variety of growing areas in the Cognac region.
Eye: Amber hue.
Nose: Delicate bouquet of tart and mushroom. Orange marmalade.
Palate: A slight taste of marmalade on the palate that develops into vanilla and honeyed notes, with gingerbread and soft spice such as ginger.
Tasting notes from Hine Cognac:
Blonde tobacco, lilac, ancient roses and sticks of liquorice follow one after the other like a cavalry. Nothing about this experience is boring and yet harmony reigns supreme.
