Tasting review

Tasting notes: a very appetizing cognac, powerful but elegant, very full. Vanilla aroma explodes on the nose and on the palate. Noble cognac with some notes of candied fruit, orange marmalade, quince, pear. Surprising very long finish with spicy notes coming through.,

Jean Fillioux Tres Vieux Cognac is a rather old cognac, created purely from eaux-de-vies from Grande Champagne.  A cognac that is the embodiment of all that the house of Jean Fillioux is renowned for - quality, style and aplomb!  A wonderful tipple to enjoy at the end of a splendid meal.

Fillioux Tres Vieux

I have a house in Charente, and while I am more of a scotch expert than I am of cognac, I have drunk a fair amount and have neighbours with strong views. I was at a get together when I was given a glass of Fillioux Tres Vieux and I thought it was nectar. I told my host that it was as good as any cognac I could remember, and on leaving to my surprise he generously gave me a bottle. I have shared it in England, as I have Hine and Maudet in the Charente.
I remain convinced it is the best I have tasted while recognising that I have not drunk the most expensive cognacs around. It is smooth but has more character than some of the finer grand champagnes I have tried. It has the typical caramel and vanilla but somehow seems to balance the velvet with structure and is forthright with a long finish. It is not inexpensive at 90 euros or so but for a top bottle that is to be expected.
