Cognac Hine Vintage 1986
Appellation Cognac Grande Champagne Contrôlée
Aged in Jarnac
Brigitte Bardot and the swinging sixties couldn't have done it better: with flamboyant notes of blonde tobacco, candied quince and roasted vine peaches, this 30-year-old cognac oscillates between lightness and opulence.
The oak comes, however, as a sobering reminder, structuring excessive ardour.
