XO Homage to Thomas Hine
In this tribute to Thomas Hine, adventurous Englishman landed from England in the 18th century to discover the subtleties within cognac, there is a notably uncommon je-ne-sais-quoi. Both discrete and whimsical, tangy pear and sharp orange zest rally. Mark Darcy meets Mick Jagger.
A two-decades journey across the Channel will then combine geographic adventure and lifelong tradition. Under the arched vaults of damp British cellars, a recital of candied citrus awakens. With it, notes of honey and fresh hazelnuts.
Single vintages gently taunt each other before finding their own harmony, sheltered in their decanter.
The French way of falling under the English spell.
