Tasting Note: Complexity of aromas, old leather, dry flowers. Pleasant smoothness, woody and hazelnut.
Grape Variety: 100% Ugni Blanc.
Fermentation: Natural until end of November 1983.
Barrels: In French (Limousin) Oakwood barrels of 350 liters, closed and sealed by BNIC (National Office for Cognac) representatives just after distillation.
Ageing: The first 3 years in a “dry” cellar to obtain the maximum of evaporation (the “angel share”) to lose the “bad” alcohols responsible of the fire and strength of a young spirit; during this period, evaporation can be up to 5-6%. After these first 3 years, stored in a “humid” cellar for a longer aging. Aging is controlled by BNIC representatives, who from times to times, come and control each stamp on the sealed barrels.
