Brownish gold with orange highlights. Intensely bright and clear.
Dense and complex, opening with notes of candied orange peel, marzipan, vanilla cream, brioche and toast, leading into heady ‘rancio’.
Powerful, deep and complex. Superb silky tannins, with hints of fresh hazelnut, beeswax and honey, melting into a long, clean and satisfying ‘rancio’.
A seamless harmony of nose and palate, with perfect balance between alcohol, tannin and body.
A Limited Edition, only 188 bottles of 40 Year Old will be released in 2016.
Definitely a cognac to savour neat, small sip by sip.
The House has withstood everything that Man and Nature have inflicted on it for over 500 years, but this
long battle has left its mark on the building and nowhere more than on the extensive timberwork.
The window ledge captured in this photograph by Julia Hasse is a silent witness to the sufferings of the Old House over time
As I was opening a window, a ray of morning sunshine lit up the ledge, revealing its hidden beauty. I was fascinated by the textures carved into the
wood by centuries of weathering and by the richness of the colours.
