Cognac Hennessy Fine 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The eaux-de-vie in Hennessy Fine de Cognac were selected for their floral and fruity aromas as well as their great integrity. After distillation, they are immediately placed in the Hennessy cellars, where they are preserved in ten-year-old oak casks in which three or four generations of eaux-de-vie have already been aged. The younger eaux-de-vie reveal notes of white grapefruit and orange blossom, adding extra vigour and vitality. The more mature eaux-de-vie are accentuating its delicately structured, round and mellow character.

The world’s largest and possibly most recognizable Cognac brandy producer was established by Irish entrepreneur Richard Hennessy in the late 18th century. Hennessy served in the French army for 12 years to gain citizenship, and it is for this reason that the “bras armé” is the official symbol of the brand. Jean Fillioux was hired as the first master blender in 1786. The brandy is produced within the four main regions of Cognac, France: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, and Fins Bois, and is a blend of Cognacs produced and barrelled by independent growers and distillers. The brand boasts the largest Cognac aging facility, with the capacity to age and store a quarter million casks. Moët Champagne acquired the brand in 1971 to become the Moët Hennessy Group. Hennessy is considered a luxury brand, with a recent popularity among celebrities and followers of the hip-hop music scene. New marketing efforts have expanded the brand offerings to include Pure White (an unaged release), Hennessy Black (a young release produced as a cocktail mixer), and Fine de Cognac (a VSOP blend).  Read less
