HERMITAGE 30YO GRANDE CHAMPAGNE COGNAC
Hermitage seek history and provenance in their cognacs which are either vintages from the year of harvesting, or age statements, with defined years of barrel ageing.
Cognacs from the Grande Champagne mature more slowly, but this is an advantage. They can remain in their casks for longer, drawing on the oak that will, after decades of ageing, provide the intense richness known as rancio.
Their cognacs are very special so only those from single estates are acceptable. Each handpicked cognac reflects the terroir of its origin and the dedicated skills, accrued over generations, of the family who produced it.
Thirty years of oak ageing ensures this cognac has far more intense flavour and complexity than the big commercial blends. It has a rich nutty, spice and coffee flavour with mature pineapple background.
A high level of complexity with mocha, rich toffee on the nose with roasted walnuts. There are some sweet spice aromas and just a hint of pineapple.
