Hermitage, 1995 Grande Champagne, Cognac
Global Luxury Spirits Masters 2019 – Gold Award
“This is one to treasure and bring out on special occasions.” Will Lyons, The Sunday Times
We were lucky to find this wonderful cognac available for bottling as a replacement for our award-winning 1999 vintage which has run out. The 1995 comes from the same distillery but has aged for a longer period, enabling a greater complexity of flavours. This is a rich and beautifully finished cognac fit for a king.
Delightful rich aromas of butterscotch, cocoa, cloves, Brazil nuts, walnuts and baked apple peel. Finishing tones of mandarin peel and damson.. The spirit is aged in 350 litre casks, 6 to 8 months in new and then old Limousin casks.
The soil here is flatter than that around Segonzac and the Coniaçian chalk is similar to that on which the town of Cognac is built. The weather here is at its most even with only nominal extremes of hot and cold and low rain fall.
