Jean Luc Pasquet L'esprit de Famille Le Cognac de Jean (500ml)

Cognac, FRANCE
$250.00 Bottle
  • ABV 49.6%

One in a series labelled 'L'esprit de Famille', this single cask cognac is a blend of 1969 and 1977 Grande Champagne eau de vies from Jean Biais, a fellow vintner, distiller and neighbour of Jean Luc. Based in the town of Eraville in Charente, Jean passed away in 2005 at the age of 84 but his legacy remains. Pasquet describes this as a cognac of character, "like the man who crafted it from grapes to eau de vie". Intensely spicy yet round, bursting with aromas of citrus, oak and ginger and finishing with a warm black pepper fade. Bottled uncut at 49.6% Alc./Vol. 488 bottles produced.

Other reviews... As with every Cognac in this series of tributes to revered members of the Cognac community, this offering is close to Pasquet’s heart. A friend and neighbor, Jean Blais took Jean-Luc Pasquet under his wing to share with him the ancestral secrets of Cognac production, meaning this bottle brings the two families together just as they were previously. And that’s not all– both families also come from outside of Eraville, so their family history, both within Cognac and outside of it, is rich and shared. This Cognac, made from a blend of two vintages, is full of character. Pasquet "L´Esprit de Famille" Jean Cognac is introduced in a slim, classic bottle with a ruby red seal that cleverly complements the copper and amber hues of the beverage. The baby blue labeling denotes the artisanal craft of the house behind it, and it was created in tandem with the Pasquet Bernadette Cognac– another tribute to a close family friend. On the nose, it's slow to arrive; once it does, expect sweet, festive notes of ginger cookie, fig bread, anise, praline and vanilla. Then on the palate comes full-bodied flavors of spice and a dry fruitiness. Dried fruits bring a tanginess while sweetness sticks around with the taste of biscuit, a hint of white pepper sitting alongside. The end notes are made up of walnut and black pepper, with a long, warming finish. A beautiful blend with a vintage feel... -
