This venerable eau de vie, distilled in 1998 by Gianni Capovilla in stills heated in a bain-marie, has been patiently matured in barrels. The slow maturation has enabled its aromatic and gustatory palette to become extremely complex and fleshy while still keeping a surprisingly fresh expression. At times it also reminds us of the minerality of a Grande Champagne de Cognac, as it reaches the apex of its fruitiness, revealing notes of blackberry and blueberry. With great mathematical precision, in its own characteristic way, it manages to square the circle.

Beautiful orangey copper colour. Tertiary, the initial nose is characterised by notes of candied apricot, leather, beeswax and lime blossom honey. Enhanced by an incredibly elegant rancio, its oxidative character evokes an eau de vie de Cognac from the Grande Champagne region. Very rich and complex, the palate reveals simultaneous notes of fruit (apricot, mango), vanilla, cream, spices (star anise, ginger), herbs, wine (cooked grapes) and chocolate. Dark berries (blackberry, blueberry) make a noteworthy and remarkable appearance on the finish. The retro-nasal olfaction is chocolatey, saffrony and delicately salty. Spicy, the empty glass reveals resinous notes of pine and cedar.
