Eye: Golden amber.

Nose: The initial aromas are subtle and gentle; we notice berry of Sichuan, old roses, tobacco and violet. The finale in the empty glass allows aromas of cream of walnut and almond to arise.

Palate: Smooth and balanced as a good Grande Champagne should be, and complex. Flavors of candied fruits, honey of locust tree, praline and a hint of nutmeg.

Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne

A Grande Champagne, single-barrel Cognac from 1990 

Vallein Tercinier have done it again with one of their vintage, single cask bottles. The Lot 90 Grande Champagne Cognac has been carefully selected by the cellar master; the eau-de-vie of 1990’s harvest is now bottled in 2016 after being aged in oak barrels. As a Grande Champagne vintage should demonstrate, it has a smooth and complex spirit, thanks to the nature of the soil in this prestigious terroir. The Grande Champagne is the most celebrated of crus in the Cognac region, thanks to the unique makeup of the soil. The content of lime is due to the millions of years of fossilization in this maritime region; this gives it a chalkiness that makes for the perfect acidity in Cognac production. The Vintage Cognac means that it has been chosen from one single cask; something which seems to be done with art-like precision at the Cognac house of Vallein Tercinier. Indulge in one of its fine single barrel bottles, and enjoy a fine Grande Champagne vintage.

The spirit of the Vallein Tercinier Cognac house

The house of Vallein Tercinier Cognac is one of family tradition and artisanal craft. Their history goes back over 500 years to 1850. Passed down from one family member to another, they have remained true to tradition, while simultaneously embracing the changes in new technology to make for a fantastic set of Cognacs; including a variety of vintages from single year harvests. Based at the Domaine des Forges, the cellar masters harness a lot of expertise within their terrain.

The presentation of a Vallein Tercinier Cognac is crucial in the Cognac making process. The presentation of the Lot 90 Cognac does not fail to disappoint; arriving in a simple bottle, with a traditional label and a seal on the side of the bottle. It clearly displays the family crest and estate on the bottle, of which 990 were made. 

How to enjoy the Lot 90 Vintage

As with a good vintage, enjoy it neat and take in all of its sensory treats.
