CONTE FILLES 2011 Cask 54 TTG 49,8%
Cognacs, France / Poitou-charentes, 70cl, Ref: 53862
In 2011, fifth-generation Cognac growers and producers Blandine and Anne-Laure Conte took over the family business comprising 24 hectares in three crus of the Cognac AOC, Petite Champagne, Fins Bois and Bons Bois. For our 2018 Creation Catalogue, we were naturally drawn to this magnificent Petite Champagne from the Nonaville terroir, produced entirely from the Ugni Blanc varietal. Distilled without lees for increased finesse, it was aged initially in a “red” cask and then finished a 4-year-old cask. To boot, it’s their very first Cognac.
Profile: the original initial nose is medicinal (tiger balm), peppery and fruity (grapefruit, grape). Allowed to breathe, it develops herbaceous, milky (coconut) and fermentation notes. The resolute attack wavers between spice, almond milk and rhubarb. The mid-palate is a blend of pressed lemons and dried fruit. The finish restores the milky character of the nose and the palate adds aromatic plants (sage).

- Appearance : vibrant gold.
- Nose : lively, original. Initially medicinal (tiger balm) and peppery, the initial nose also reveals notes of yellow grapefruit, white grapes and William pear. Allowed to breathe, it also becomes herbaceous (straw, cut hay), lactic (coconut, vanilla) and even more fruity (pomelo). With remarkable freshness, it gradually reveals fermenting grapes.
- Palate : lively, sharp. The strong-willed attack wavers between grated ginger, almond milk and rhubarb. With an invigorating acidity, the mid-palate brings pressed lemons and dried fruit (cashew nut, apricot). Gradually, cocoa bean and white fruit (pear, apple) add lots of harmony to the end of the palate.
- Overall : long, silky. The very milky (rice pudding, crème fraîche) finish is also beautifully fruity. Immediately after, aromatic plants (chervil, sage, savory) create a very pleasant herbaceous freshness. Gradually, the finish returns to its very essence - grapes. The slender retro-nasal olfaction is characterised by notes of tobacco, ginger and black liquorice. Like the initial nose, the empty glass is medicinal, camphoric and herbaceous.
