Park Cognac

The delightful Park Vintage 1972 Cognac is, at present, in a minority in the cognac world - because there aren't that many vintage, year specific cognacs available.  And we have to say, this one is a wonderful example of how great such a cognac can be.

The harvest of 1972 was the result of a cold and rainy spring that caused the vines to flower later than usual.  But a dry, hot summer followed, allowing a well balanced maturation of the grapes.  These had a high level of acidity, meaning the eaux-de-vie could be easily and well-preserved.  This in turn made for an excellent quality distillation, resulting in rich, powerful wines...

This cognac is made of solely Petite Champagne eau-de-vie, with delicate floral aromas and dominant fruity notes–typical for this terroir.

Tasting review by Park Cognac:

Offers a variety of aromas such as dried apricots, blackcurrant, finishing with notes of pink grapefruit. The final note reveals hints of vanilla and milk chocolate with an exceptionally long finish.

Do they come from the same region? What on earth do Cognac and Champagne have in common? OK, so let’s shed some light on the subject, because it confuses many. Cognac Read full article...
Best Vintage Cognacs for 2017
24-03-2017 / A Vintage Cognac is also referred to as a Millésime Cognac, meaning it’s a Cognac from a single year and a single harvest. For whisky this is commonly known as “single barrel“.
