Another market leading cognac, Hennessy’s rich and full-bodied flavours strike a special balance which makes it so popular. Bright and fruity from first opening, Hennessy also has undertones of oak and once in the mouth flavours of nutty grilled almonds and a hint of fresh grapes are released. Tones of red berries and vanilla follow and ageing of a minimum of 2 years helps bolster the intense smoothness of the drink.
Composition: 50% Chardonnay from Cramant, Avize, Les Mesnil/Oger and Oger. 46% Pinot Noir from Mailly, Ay, Ambonnay and Mareuil/Ay. 4% Pinot Meunier from Dizy and Venteuil 6 years on the lees before disgorgement. Comments: Perrier-Jouët prestige cuvee is a fresh, well structured wine. Silky and airy, it is truly the epitome of charm and elegance reflecting the Chardonnays of Cramant and Pinot Noirs of Mailly. Alcohol: 12.5% Dosage: 9g/1 Tasting Notes: The 2004 Belle Epoque has notes of brioche and white peaches, and is fresh, open, well balanced and complex.
