Hine Antique XO Premier Cru, Grand Champagne Cognac
An intricate and exceptional blend of cognacs over a decade old and sourced exclusively from the Grand Champagne district. The Antique XO offers enchanting aromas of sweet oak and vanilla spice, a hint of fresh green fruits, ripe quince and figs, roasted pineapple and hazelnuts. In the battle for prominence, stone fruits and gentle oak dance across the palate, where I think the fruits win the day. But sweet oak and ginger spice fight a valiant rear-guard action at the finish.
