Prince Hubert De Polignac V.S.O.P. Cognac

Burnished orange. First nosing passes pick up raisins and prunes; aeration expands the bouquet profile by adding zesty scents of black pepper, leather and pear. Starts smoothly at palate entry, then turns a bit hot at midpalate as off-dry flavors of dried red fruit, ripe grapes and candied almonds seem baked, minerally and overly spiced. Rounds out in the steely, slate-like finish. P.P.
