This vintage Cognac comes from a small fruit farm situated in the area of Saintes, a few kilometers from the eponym city. Starting in 1971 with 10 hectares of apple tree, this farm owns now about 100 hectares of fruit trees, and only a few of hectares of vine. This hardy terroir, made of clay and loam, is not claiming to be the best for vine growing. However, a good culture of the vine, a fine distillation, and quality aging, make this cognac powerful and balanced, more and more sought after by the amateurs.

One has to let the glass at the air, to experience more light and green notes like grape stalk, clove. Breath of salty air.In the mouth we find the nose, with a certain power at the beginning. The wood is well balanced. Very light dryness on final, because of recent water reduction (goes very quickly) . A beautiful delicacy, cognac easily accessible.
