Hine Bonneuil 2008
£92.50

A single estate Grande Champagne Cognac from legendary Cognac house Hine. The 2008 vintage Bonneuil was drawn from just 16 refill French oak barrels, a rare opportunity to sample the personality of the terroir and that particular harvest.


Aromas of vanilla, toasted almonds and buttery brioche lead among strong oak. Candied apricot, toffee apples and stem ginger combine on the palate. Rich honey lingers on the finish.

Description

Details

2013 saw the 250th anniversary of the founding of Hine Cognacs whose quality, refined through six generations, has been recognised the world over. Hine selects its eau-de-vie exclusively from the top Crus of grande and Petite Champagne in the very heart of the Cognac region. The house of Hine stands on the banks of the River Charente and, it is in its dark, ancient cellars that their unrivalled collection of cognac reserves gently age in mature oak casks under the supervision of Hine‰ЫЄs Cellar Master, Eric Forget. Family tradition dictates that Hine cognacs are aged far longer than the minimum time required by French law. They prefer to set their own, higher standards so that their cognacs are only released when they have reached maturity.

Hine is one of the few houses to specialise in Vintage cognacs, either matured in Jarnac, or shipped to the UK at an early age and matured in cool, damp British cellars, and bottled as Early-landed Vintages. In 1962 the exceptional quality of Hine was officially recognised when the company was awarded the Royal Warrant for the supply of cognac to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the only Cognac house to have received this honour.

The second release to be produced using Hine's own vineyards, this 2008 vintage Bonneuil is a single-estate Cognac made using Ugni Blanc grapes grown in the Grande Champagne cru of the region.
