Tasting Notes

The Estève estate is one of the best we have worked with in all of France. This family run property has been in operation since 1800 and the cognacs produced here are made with the exceptional level of care that comes with over two hundred years of experience. The average age of stocks blended for the Hors d'Age far exceeds a decade and while this spirit is beginning to shed some youth and show some signs of maturity, the character and quality is still centered around the exceptional fruit flavors you'll find in the aromas, flavors and finish. Notes here include ripe blood orange, lemon tea, apricot preserves, white peaches, fig cake, hazelnuts and milk chocolate. An exceptional value for a Cognac with this pedigree.

Staff Pick Notes

What I love about this cognac: -Delicate fruit on the nose without seeming "light" -Excellent floral character -Good grip on the palate I'm guilty of thinking the older, the better when it comes to cognac. Then I tasted the Hors d'Age from Jacques Estève, the youngest* of his lineup at Astor, and it blew me away! I was struck by the aromas of fresh yellow plum and wildflowers. Gentle esters and great spice, ranging from baking to pepper, continue on the palate, which is full of violets and tisane. Walnut, spice cake, deliciousness at every sniff and sip. This cognac keeps giving and giving and it's youthful character beams with purity and ease. *It should be noted Estève's Hors d'Age is aged longer than the required 10 years.
