Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
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.
