Ugni Blanc exclusively from vines located in the South East of our Estate from the plot named “Chez Piet”. The soils there are typically from rande Champagne, crumbly lime stone with some clay top layer over thick crumbled lime stone. The BNIC (Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac), the governing body in the Cognac region guarantees the authenticity and traceability of the vintage program by monitoring the wax sealed barrels in our cellars. To the eye: Shining, orange color with yellow hues To the nose: Unique perfect balance of various dry fruit aromas (chestnuts, figs…), plums and dried apricots. They are followed by wood aromas, rancio notes, cigar box typical from an old Grande Champagne. To the end leather tones underline the typical authenticity of age, time and patience…25 years To the palate: Charming, smooth, creamy with yet a firm structure, showing finesse and complexity. Perfectly matured grapes for the wine, followed by a destillation of fine lees have given this exceptional length and aftertaste amplified by the long Limousin oak barrel aging Cellar master’s notes, Patrice Piveteau: Low yield characterized by this vintage, in addition to that year’s warm and dry weather conditions during the final maturation weeks at the end of the summer allowed perfect grape maturation. At the end of distillation, his particular lot characterized by savors and aromas in a perfect balance and structure, was a natural choice for our vintage program.
