Tasting Notes

Blandine & Anne-Laure Conte, the two sisters running this estate, are the 5th generation of their family to continue the traditions of Cognac production. While the estate covers ground in three crus, this bottling comes from vines planted in Petite Champagne exclusively. Far from the soft fruit and mellow taste that has become a bit too common for this cru, the Conte sisters have created a blend that is bold in profile and not focused on fruit at all with earthy notes that lean savory including notes of sweet tobacco, sous bois, mushrooms, rancio and hazelnut butter. While technically listed as an 18 year old spirit, this single cask vatting contains mostly older brandies with over 30% coming from vintages older than 1990, 30% from 1995, 20% 1996, 8% 1997 & 10% 1999. Cask #63 has slowly come to proof by a gradual reduction conducted by the sisters.
