Starting with a simple idea in mind – to create a BOLD and INTENSE expression of Extra – Cyril CAMUS asked the Cellar Master Patrick Léger to select the best barrels of Extra Cognac to follow a special ageing process. The chosen barrels are emptied of their precious Cognac and returned to the Master Cooper to be opened and toasted again, one by one, to boost their full aromatic potential. This re-toasting process is tailor-made, barrel by barrel.
The Hine Bonneuil 2008 Cognac is an unblended delight from a single harvest of, as the name suggests, the year 2008. From the Grande Champagne terroir, it provides a pure expression of the best of the region’s chalky soil, from which the vines draw their unique identity.
