Bio:

I have been blindtasting wine on a regular basis with a group of friends for mor than thirty years and got more and more fascinated by spirits during the last five years. After exploring r(h)ums and whisk(e)y I finally got into Armagnac and Cognac. I am happy to be able to continue this interesting journey.

Great Bon Bois - Lheraud 1967 GotA Cognac

Exceptional 90 /100
Verified purchase

Deep amber colour.
The nose of this cognac is a complex mix of earthiness, fresh tree bark, leather, overripe plums and apricots and withering flowers on a cemetery in November.
On the palate fresh and vibrant, mouthfilling, dark chocolate, sweetnes of dried fruits (plums, apricots), fresh spicy notes and fine wood - great balance of alcohol, sweetness and wood!
The finish is also quite complex - overripe fruits, dried fruits (raisins, apricots), but also minty freshness and going on really long!
I have to admit, that I was sceptical about buying this cognac after reading the accolades of people who got free samples before the release, but I wanted to know for myself. It is a very fine cognac in my honest opinion but was it worth the price?
The price is high for a Bons Bois, but Lheraud, GotA, FOMO and scarcity work together here. I do not regret buying it and I am grateful to be able to drink it and share it with friends and family.

Tasting

Nose

What aromas do you get when you sniff the Cognac? Do you get hints of fruits or flowers - perhaps it's sweet? Is it intense or rather flat - and most importantly, is the nose coherent to taste and finish? The nose is the most important part when tasting Cognac.

22/25

Mouth

A small sip: Allow your taste buds in the various areas of your mouth to distinguish the different flavours. This part of cognac tasting is described as ‘the palate’. Don’t just swallow it down; allow the liquid to touch all the regions of the mouth. Doing this is necessary as the taste buds pick up contrasting flavours in the different areas of the mouth; on the tip of your tongue to the sides, for example. Take a tiny sip to prep your palate for the sensory experience to come. Take a second larger sip, and gently roll the cognac around, etting it come into contact with every corner of your mouth. Focus on the perceived textural sensations. Are the sensations round and rich or fresh and elegant? Is the overall mouthfeel intense, balanced, disjointed, or lacking presence? In short, how does the cognac feel in your mouth?

18/20

口味

Quite simply, what do you taste as you gently roll the cognac around in your mouth? Pay close attention to any flavors of fruits, flowers, oak, and spices - or a complex combination of those elements. Are the flavors cohesive with the Nose and the Mouth, giving a sense of balance and complexity?

23/25

结束

The ‘finish’ is the experience you get after you’ve swallowed the cognac. What flavours can you detect? Is it a flat or rough finish and rather sharp, or is it a slight 'punch' you like? How long does the finish last? Also think about overall balance: How does the finish compare to nose and taste?

18/20

Overall Impression

Consider the Nose, Mouth, Taste, and Finish simultaneously - the cognac as a whole. Is there cohesion between the four categories, or does the cognac shine in some areas and appear dull in others? Quite simply, is the memory from the tasting experience one that will last your lifetime; is the memory good but nothing extraordinary; or is the cognac’s impact entirely forgettable?
