Cognac Antique XO Premier Cru Hine
 

“To sing, to laugh, to dream,
To walk in my own way and be alone,
Free, with an eye to see things as they are,
A voice that means manhood—to cock my hat
Where I choose—”

 

Cyrano de Bergerac, his plumed hat and poetic speech are the witnesses to a final, lingering mouthful that never ceases to surprise. In a blend of mature eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne, Antique sets out to be different. A perpetual conversation between the fruit and oak reveals notes of hazelnut, quince cheese and mild spices, appearing amid accents of fig tart and blonde tobacco. Mischievous complexity comes into being, along with sleek vivacity.

Accompanied by mature mimolette or cheddar cheese, a roasted pineapple or a few pieces of orange chocolate, Antique lingers even longer. To be savoured to the soundtrack of a prelude by Glenn Gould.
