Its aromas and flavors are simply superb. Surrenne has bottled the lot unblended, with no additives, just as it came from the sun, in tribute to its distiller, who quietly produced one of the finest Cognacs ever made. The rich fruit is astonishingly generous for a 52-year-old bottling.
Living up to its pedigree, the cognac exhibits fantastic fruit and complexity on a long, exceptional finish.
Distilled on a wood-fired still by Hubert Portier, from grapes grown in his family vineyard. The first vintage following WWII, 1946 was also one of Cognac’s great vintages. Unlike other cognacs, this has never been blended and was bottled directly from the barrel.
