Tasting note

  • Appearance : topaze.
  • Nose : ample, charnu. Des épices appuyées (gingembre, girofle) côtoient du chocolat noir et de la réglisse. Floral (tilleul, pivoine), il devient de plus en plus capiteux (chèvrefeuille, lys). Des fruits secs (amande, noix de cajou) et du brou de noix lui procurent beaucoup de consistance alors qu’une note de terre arrive en point d’orgue.
  • Palate : dense, concentrée. L’attaque en bouche est fraîche et fruitée (pomme reinette, raisin). Vanillée, elle gagne en onctuosité et en gourmandise (flan au lait, tarte à l’orange). Avec dynamisme, le milieu de bouche la propulse vers des notes balsamiques de pin et de terre. Des épices nobles (cardamome, cannelle) accentuent la sensation de vivacité que procure la bouche.
  • Overall : longue, équilibrée. Elle possède beaucoup de mâche avec ses notes de peaux de raisins et de pêches blanches. Duveteuse, elle s’oriente vers un registre plus automnal (mousse, champignons). La rétro olfaction revient sur la vanille et le verre vide est fruité (mirabelle, raisin mûr).
The brand

The brand

Wine-growers in the French region of Saintonge for over two centuries, the Merlet family installed its first still in around 1850 in order to begin distilling and producing cognac. Over generations, they have refined their craft and now produce unique eaux de vie that are characteristic of the Saintonge terroir. Everything, from the alchemy of the still’s copper to the oak of the barrels, comes together over time to allow their eaux de vie to blossom into harmonious cognacs. In the 1970s, the creation of the Cassis plantation represented the first step in the diversification of the local wine-making terroir. The birth of the Crème de Cassis of Saintonge Boisée led to the creation of a range of fruit crèmes that are today extremely well-known.
