Hine Bonneuil 2005 Cognac 43% 70cl
This is the first release of Bonneuil in what will become a collection. A limited edition of just 8000 bottles from 18 selected casks from the 2005 vintage. All the grapes used are from Hines own 120ha estate in the heart of Grande Champagne. 2005 was an excellent vintage which can rival that of 1953, which was on eof the best in the last century.
Tasting note by Eric Forget, Hine Cellar Master
Bonneuil 2005 is an exotic cognac, developing powerful aromas of fully matured grapes together with hints of gingerbread, liquorice and oriental spices on the nose. It has great presence on the palate revealing a rich and jam like texture. The warm aromas of honey, pineapple and cloves lead to an oriental finish lingering deliciously on the palate.
