Eye: Deep mahogany, with a lighter yellow reflection.

Nose: Solid bouquet blending offering suggestions of honey, lavender, crushed dried spices, vanilla, hazelnut and buttered brioche.

Palate: The palate is sleek and mildly sweet in a fruity way. Mid-palate with ripe red fruit, buttery oak and firm spirit. The aftertaste is long, svelte and more fruity than oaky.

About Brillet J R Cognac

Proud of its family tradition, Brillet Cognac insists that the history is entirely linked to that of cognac. As early on as 1656, Guy Brillet installed his first alembic (the classic still) at his property in the Grande Champagne. This was the introduction of the double distillation process that creates cognac to this day. The Brillets live off their philosophy that things made with care are more valuable, sticking to traditional techniques of production and packaging. Their motto is not to impress through high maintenance or expensive containers, but rather through a humble and high quality aesthetic: a real family business!
