Although a relatively new brand of cognac, the history of the vineyards and buildings that make up Thierry Bonnin Cognac can be traced back through the centuries. With a land area that’s been gradually increasing in size over the years, Thierry Bonnin not only create their own wines, cognacs and pineau, but also supply eaux-de-vie to some of the biggest names in cognac – such as Hennessy and Courvoisier. The property is known as Le Maine Michaud, and is ably run by Thierry and Jacqueline Bonnin, with the help of Guyot Poussart. Both Thierry and his wife come from farming families. They use the centuries of traditions and experience that has been passed down through the generations to create a cognac brand and legacy that they can be proud to leave for their children to inherit.
The colour is amber, on the nose some mature wood and vanilla. Dried fruit like apricot and almonds. The taste itsel is round, some fruit and hints of wood again. Mellow aftertaste, structured and some round Petite Champagne notes, such as Fins Bois fruit aromas.
Tasting review by Park Cognac:
A crisp bouquet of citrus flavors, caramelized banana flambé, and freshly-picked wild peaches flourishes to a pleasing marriage of jasmine and earl grey truly incomparable sensory experience.
