Guillon-Painturaud Hors d'Age Cognac
A defining grower Cognac. The Guillon family has been living in the heart of the Grande Champagne region since 1610. Over the last three generations their land has been gradually planted with Ugni Blanc vines, and in the early 1970s the family started selling their own cognac under the Guillon-Painturaud name. Guillon-Painturaud Hors d'Age was aged in oak for 30 years, imparting a lovely bronze hue and a rich, full body. A focused bouquet of raisin, sautéed almond and fig leads to a crisp, structured palate with notes of ripe fruit, vanilla and cedar. The long finish is bittersweet with pronounced flavors of oak complemented by fig and dates.
