Dit product is niet uit voorraad leverbaar

Gedistilleerd in 1957 - bottled 28/01/2021 - 64 jaar oude cognac - grande champagne

Chocolade en zachte specerijen, appelsien, perzik & geconfijt fruit, pim-koekjes, krentenbrood. Lange volle afdronk.
Een absolute top grande champagne. Het heeft ons ruim een half jaar tijd gekost om deze botteling te realiseren samen met de bijna 90 jaar oude eigenaar. Veel kennis en vakmanschap, maar ook veel koppigheid samengevat in dit vat, vandaar : "Le Têtu".

Serge Valentin,, 18/07//2021:
Apparently, the name Le Têtu (Mr Stubborn) refers to the ninety-year-old owner/distiller. In French, we sometimes joke and say those lovely people are 'têtus comme des barriques' (instead of bourriques, which means mules). Do you understand me? Yep that's part of the French paradox; now careful, they usually own old shotguns filled with rock salt. And naturally, this is a 1957. Colour: golden amber. Nose: we're really striking gold today. This time we're having a huge bag of all kinds of raisins produced by Man (sultanas and all the others) plus dried figs and litchis/longans. Then some fantastic lightly savoury notes, bouillons, satay sauce, korma… And perhaps some beach sand, damp chalk… This is a pretty intriguing development towards coastalness. No oysters though. Mouth: still rustic, in a marvellous way. Pear skins, vieille poire, even touches of raw cider, then a wide range of earthier raisins and figs, some caramel, old rancio (try the old Rivesaltes from France – the price for a good rancio is… 10€ a bottle, which is a crying shame! Many people talk about rancio in cognac without even knowing what rancio really is). Some chocolate liqueur, earth, pinewood, overripe bananas… But no over-woodiness whatsoever. Finish: love this finish – sadly it's the finish – with a lot of citrus in all their guises plus some tiny aromatic herbs, especially wormwood. Someone may have poured a few drops of absinth into this glory. Comments: Mr Stubborn? Well two can play at this game…
SGP: 561 - 91 points.

Cognac Jean Aubineau 1957 ‘Le Têtu’ – Grande Champagne (47,3%, Malternative Belgium 2021, 50 btl.)
Nose: very fruity. Apricots, quinces, damsons. Orange oil. Peonies and a whiff of potpourri. Light herbal notes and mint tea in the background. There’s also a slightly darker side, with a hint of caramel and earthy tobacco, maybe cedar, and wildflowers. Elegant, not too thin, really good.
Mouth: oily start, with a fine texture. Oak spice and tobacco at first, then some mentholated notes, and once this clears, a lovely fruitiness! More tropical now, including a hint of passion fruit. Some aniseed and Jaffa cakes towards the end.
Finish: medium, slightly more rustic. Some oak spice, mint and cocoa but never drying.
Quite wonderful. It hits the sweet spot between a thinner, fruity style and a more rustic, darker profile.
