This rare Cognac comes from the commune of Brousse, near Matha, from a small farm. The current producer, born in 1952, still has cognacs distilled by his father and grandfather. It was only in 1950 that the property was equipped with a traditional 16 hectoliters still (Maresté), which then worked on wood (during the day, for the scrambles) and on charcoal (at night, for the good toast). ). Previously, as in most Charente estates, only a small boiler of 500 or 600 litres was used to distil the production of wines. This cognac is the result of the assembly of two batches, made on the advice of a great Cognac house, by the winegrower himself. The cognac was bottled in 2000.
Straight and clean amount, the nose of old Fins Bois, with a delicate rancio, but what is striking is the intensity of the notes of red fruits, blackcurrant bud, redcurrant, cherry. The nose is of rare quality, with a complexity that cannot be forgotten. On the palate, the attack is straightforward, almost easy, unsurprisingly giving the spicy notes (sandalwood, cedar, pepper) one would expect from a cognac of this age. The surprise arrives immediately after, the first reassuring notes suddenly giving way to blackcurrant, to chiselled and captivating aromas, which suddenly burst, giving this cognac a whole new dimension. The finish is long and complex. Superb.
