Description

This very rare cognac comes from a small farm located in a village close to Courbillac, Herpès. This producer works for other distilleries to supplement his income, and he is recognized as an expert of an ancient distillation practice called “méthode grasse”, which gives richness and density to the “eau-de-vie”, increasing substantially the positive effects of aging. We buy the entire harvest, entirely composed of the Folle Blanche grape variety, which is then vinified and distilled on the estate, before starting its ageing process in our cellars. The Folle Blanche is a grape variety which originates from the region, long before the Phylloxera crisis, and it has since become very rare (around 1% of vineyards in the region), because of its sensitivity to Botrytis. This cognac was slowly reduced after the distillation while in specific casks to fully reveal the beneficial effects of this ancient distillation method.

▶ On the nose, notes of ripe grapes, and apricot, old Sauternes. Cinnamon, candied fruits and pineapple roasted nose. Tender, tasty on the palate, it’s possible to feel the greasy notes coming from this distillation process. A little «compote» side which could be due to the fact that the percentage of “second” is important. Very smooth though, spicy finish; seems to be older than in reality. A nice Fins Bois, very rare.
