Robb Report: November 1, 2008
When the men of Cognac went off to fight in World War I, the job of distilling the estate’s recently harvested wine fell to the region’s women. The style of the period reflects this feminine touch in the form of a lighter and somewhat more elegant spirit. Aged in a dark, damp cellar for 75 years in Limousin oak barrels before being transferred to a demijohn for storage, this newly released dark-amber Cognac exudes aromas of oak, cedar, vanilla, leather and spice, while its complex flavor profile integrates damp tobacco, dried pineapple, vanilla, buttery pound cake and clean spearmint.
