Rich gold with ruby highlights. It gradually reveals a complex bouquet of pear, quince and fig, the result of long aging in oak casks. Superbly persistent flavor from this very old cognac, available in limited quantity. To be savored slowly.
Wine Enthusiast 92 points - This is a brandy with a dark side, featuring intense, sticky-sweet notes of cola, allspice, clove and toffee, with some alcohol warmth on the finish. The concentrated nature of this Cognac would make it a match for equally intense chocolaty desserts.
