A sublime marriage of over 100 eaux-de-vie, some more than a century old. Amber/gold appearance. Textbook tête de cuvée Cognac bouquet of pine needles, clover honey, rancio, sweet oak and spiced apple. Offers elegant flavors of fatty rancio, soft cheese, wood smoke and bacon fat from entry through midpalate. Finishes more woody and resiny than fruity-ripe. Still a favorite after all these years. Gorgeous.
