With remarkable complexity, this version’s palette of flavours and aromas develops at the pace of medicinal, fruity, herbaceous, floral, spicy and woody sequences whose richness are rivalled only by their nobility. This cognac was distilled in 1992 and aged for 30 years in French oak cask, in both dry and wet cellars and patiently reduced by adding distilled water, to be bottled at 47%.
Nose : rich, powerful. The medicinal (mustard poultice) and camphoric first nose gradually becomes more and more empyreumatic (apricot stone, beeswax) and hot (Espelette pepper). Allowed to breathe, the aroma palette becomes more candied (pear, prune), balsamic (cedar, thuja), exotic (pineapple, flambeed banana) and vegetal (tobacco, lucerne). Iris notes then fragrance the air.
Palate : refined, slender. The very generous attack reveals precise flavours of cocoa, rice powder, vanilla (pod) and cumin. The exotic mid-palate (passion fruit, persimmon, banana) is refreshed with succulent lemon notes. The end of the palate is undeniably balsamic (pine, lime blossom) and heady (honeysuckle, hawthorn).
Overall : long, consistent. At the start of the finish, noble spices (cardamom, nutmeg, clove) get the measure of a wood that forms the backbone of the flavour palette. Oily (olive) and vegetal (pipe tobacco), the end of the finish wavers between flavours of apricot, very ripe banana and nuts (walnut, chestnut). The retro-nasal olfaction and empty glass are both mentholated and empyreumatic (eucalyptus).
