Description

Hine Antique Grande Champagne XO

Antique XO is a complex Cognac, blended from more than forty eaux-de-vie produced exclusively from Grande Champagne grapes. All the elements of this sophisticated liquid have been aged for more than a decade, developing hints of chocolate and baked apple, and aromas of spices and liquorice. Antique XO is ideal for enthusiasts who enjoy lingering cognacs with density and suave structure.

NOSE

Dates and raisins to start, with candied flowers, sweet cream and malt loaf notes peeking out from behind. The richer notes develop, with dark fruit cake and rich brown sugar underpinning everything.

PALATE

Thick and rich, with fruit cake leading to a pool of spice. Stewed apples and pears are sprinkled with ground cloves by a heavy-handed chef. Lighter notes of crisp icing, sultanas and green leaves dance over the top.

FINISH

Green leaves, brown leaves and a hint of old oak start things off. The darker notes fade to leave the leaves and freshly sliced apples.

COMMENT

A rich and deeply flavoured Cognac that dips its toes into deep and dark waters without losing its fresher and zestier notes.

Producer

The House of Hine has two birth dates: 1763, when the distillery was founded on the right bank of the river Charente, and 1817, when Thomas Hine gave his name to this House. After six generations, Bernard Hine is now guardian of his family’s ethos: a great cognac is above all a great white wine.

The heart of Hine comes from the village of Bonneuil, where 70 hectars of Ugni Blanc grapes provide the core ingredients for the blending process. Here, the aim is not to mask the flavours with dominant woody tones, but to enhance them as part of a delicate exchange between the eau-de-vie and oak staves. This finesse is the result of two key choices made during the manufacturing of the barrels: the selection of wood with a very fine grain and the light toasting it then receives. The results is a superior quality cognac, since 1962 the only official supplier of cognac to the British monarchy.

Mandarine Napoleon

Mandarine Napoléon is an exquisite, well-balanced blend of mandarins and refined 10-year-old aged cognac. Dating back to the early 1800s, and its roots stemming from the hands of Napoléon Bonaparte, the liqueur’s history is as rich as its distinctive flavor. The drink was custom made for Napoléon, after the emperor came across chemist Antoine-François de Fourcroy, known for his extraordinary skill of distilling. It was not until 1892, after the two had died, that the liqueur was introduced to the public.
