Tasting review

Tasting review:

Eye: Dense, deep amber

Nose: Fine and rich, with aromas of prunes, honey, and spices.

Palate: Silky and luxurious, with concentrated flavors of old wood and candied fruits. Exceptional length of finish.

Description

The Guy Pinard & Fils Carafe XO 1979 Cognac is, so Guy Pinard lead us to believe, the oldest biological Cognac produced under the specifications known as the Méthode Lemaire-Boucher.  This means without chemical fertilizer, weedkillers, or synthetic pesticides.  The European regulation for organic production was introduced in 1991, but this barrel of 1979 Cognac was kept by the house, who converted to organic production back in 1969.  It truly is a unique Cognac.

It's a truly fine Cognac - deep amber in color, with a complex yet rounded nose and palate.  And of course, as one would expect of such an old Cognac, the finish brings with it new depths of length and a tasting experience.  Guy Pinard recommend drinking this delight neat (of course), at a temperature of around 25 °C, and from a tulip glass for the highest quality taste experience.
