A prodigious complexity, an incredible balance. At the height of expectations, which is saying a lot because it was high. Nose: Curry chocolate, oaky-vanilla, flowers, raisins, black licorice and ginger. Very complex at the level of spices. Palate: Arrival in the mouth spectacular, with an explosion of complex spices and vanilla oak. Tea, curry, ginger, saffron, nutmeg, dark chocolate, dried herbs. So complex! Final: Long and tasty. Stretches on a mixture of spices and chocolate.
More fruity than the Pierre Ferrand Réserve, curiously this older cognac is fresh and does not let the weight of the years of the wood to exceed it of the nose. On the palate, spices come to mix with oak instead of fighting with him. The final is undeniably wise, combining spices (cinnamon) and vanilla, and of course keeping the memory of the grape that plays much more a (very beautiful) backstory that the great fanfare. And even for a beginner, impossible to deny its quality.
