Hine Antique XO Cognac (700ml)

Cognac, FRANCE
$299. 00 Bottle
$3588.00 Dozen
ABV: 40%

The House of Hine stands on the banks of the River Charente, deep in Cognac country. It is one of the oldest houses in Jarnac with over 250 years of history.

Hine has recently upgraded its XO from Fine Champagne to Grande Champagne (as well as its packaging), meaning that all the eaux-de-vie used in the assemblage are from the best region of Cognac. This bottling is aged a minimum of 10 years.

Tasting note: Burnished copper colour. Several minutes in the glass yields moderately intense, semi sweet scents of dates, vanilla, marzipan and cedar. Medium bodied, soft and round with a slightly creamy texture, the palate is gently spicy and semi sweet; dried fruit (prunes, dates) and spice flavours are perfectly balanced against fine drying tannins. Finishes clean and warming with a subtle aftertaste of roasted nuts, vanilla and spice. A nicely integrated XO. 40% Alc./Vol.
