"An extremely present Cognac" - Axel & Bibiana Behrendt, Cognac, the Amateur's Guide
The nose is rich : black fruits, plums, grapes and raisins, but also notes of leather and wood. This bouquet is completed by notes of yeast and pastries that make the bouquet very buttery.
After this first tasting by scents, the real tasting can begin. The palate is rich, powerful, with beautiful hints of vanilla, nuts, dried fruits, dates and some hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. We find the buttered and pastry notes of the nose, especially with almond and marzipan. The latest flavors are warmer and more mature, breathing the cigar box and honey.
Finally, the finale is impressive. Long, very silky, it ends with spicy notes of saffron. The Jean Fillioux House presents us a wonderful cognac, very sweet and pleasant to take in the mouth.
