Category: Brandy and Cognac | Country: France | Age: 30 Yr. |
The Guillon-Painturaud family owns 18 hectares of Ugni Blanc vineyards located in one plot around the farm they have been living on since 1610. They started selling the family's cognac under their own name in the early 1970s instead of selling in bulk to the big houses. The distillation know-how has been passed from generation to generation and now an energetic young woman, Line Guillon-Painturaud, is running the family business.Average age of Cognacs in the blend is 30 years. Only water is added - no caramel color, no sugar, no boisé - procedures standard throughout the region to mask faults and acheive uniform consistency.Tasting this Cognac is an unforgettable experience. Sweet apple pie cinnamon crust and old oak. A touch of pleasant rancio slides in on the mid-palate with toffee and clove. Silky, exquisitely long finish that may bring a tear to the eye of the true Cognac lover. If I had to choose a bottle to be stranded on a desert island with, it might be this one.-DTP
