Hine Rare & Delicate Cognac
Blended exclusively from Cognacs of Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne, the two highest quality growing districts in Cognac. Rare & Delicate is aged an average of eight to ten years, far longer than required at the VSOP level. According to Bernard Hine, the taste is forward, balanced by overall structure and a long finish. Initially the nose perceives delicacy, finesse and elegance, especially characterized by a bouquet of fruit and floral aromas. The structure asserts itself on the palate where fruit and flowers are re-emphasized and a certain mellowness becomes evident.
