The Vallein Tercinier Hors d'Age Cognac really needs to be tasted to be believed, as it boasts ultra-premium level quality, surprisingly however, without the ultra-premium price tag to match. This affordable blend of both Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie is an award winning offering - from a house that takes true pride in its small, but simply sublime range of brandy and spirits. A beautifully balanced blend that has been created from over 20 different eaux-de-vie, the youngest of which has spent a minimum of four decades whiling away in oak barrels, during which time Mother Nature worked her magic. The house of Vallein Tercinier are a proud family of cellarmasters that have benefitted from five generations of wisdom, expertise and the all-important secrets behind producing some of the very best eaux-de-vie of the Champagne region. Eye: Delicious deep old gold. Nose: The initial nose greets you warmly and gives you a sense of the complexity of this Cognac. Tropical fruits such as papaya and pineapple, with a touch of rancio emerge. The second nose brings notes of jasmine, ginger and vanilla. Palate: Soft and sweet to begin with, flavors of dried peach, sweet caramel and rancio. Following this the tropical notes of the nose appear along with ginger. The finish is soft and full of pleasure.
