12 Year. Colombard, Montits, Folle Blanche. Grande Fine. Single Estate. A blend of three varietals including the quite obscure Montits. We have entered the age of spice and oak. The nose shows sweet oak spice, light rancio, grilled pineapple, dulce de leche, and a light coffee note. The palate has a sense of texture with oak and spice joined to a little cocoa nib, torbonado. D&M Tasting Notes
Golden almost orange highlights.
Bread, almond, gorse and wild peach, cinnamon, racy and complex, clearly defined, Folle Blanche, refined distillation.
Fruity, very rich, orange, fresh, very long aftertaste.
Very seductive Cognac.
Perfection in its kind (GaultMillau).
Faithful to XVIIth Century Tradition.
Strict adherence – through the centuries and contrary to modern tendencies – to traditional cognac grape varieties : Folle Blanche – Colombard – Montils varieties which are delicate and fragile to grow but inimitable in taste and aroma.Distillation on light lees in small copper pot stills – Bouilleur de Cru. Very long ageing in Limousin or Tronçais oak barrels, generally two to three times longer than legally required and even longer for top of the range products. House Notes
