The Hine company was founded in 1763 and has achieved world-wide recognition for bringing authentic cognac to new heights of perfection. Drawing inspiration from his five generations of Hine predecessors, Bernard Hine selects, nurtures and blends Hine cognacs according to a rigorous code of quality without ever losing sight of their primary objective of providing the greatest of pleasures. In addition to Signature Rare, Delicate, Antique Triomphe and Family Reserve, Hine is one of a few rare companies to propose vintage Grande Champagne cognacs. When he died, in 1822, he left more than a prosperous business. His legacy was a name already known and appreciated around the world for the exceptional quality of its cognacs.
A blend of eaux-de-vie from Grande and Petite Champagne grapes. Quite youthful, with ample alcoholic burn on the bouquet masking red berries, allspice, and some petrol notes. The palate is clean but young, heavy with heat but still able to promote notes of coconut, banana, and a mix of baking spices. The finish is rustic but sees notes of tropical fruit, mango, and golden raisins.
