$397.83 / case(6)
Personality le singulier is a highly aromatic expressive cognac due to the gentle exuberance of a rare grape – the folle blanche. 41. 7% abv typicite a single growth: fine champagne. Well-known in the cognac region producing rich complex eaux-de-vie. A single grape: folle blanche a rare traditional variety with remarkable aromatic intensity. A single distillation method: wine fine lees: natural. A balance of aromatic expressiveness and finesse. Tasting notes this cognac is the product of fine eaux-de-vie from the fine champagne growth and the highly distinctive folle blanche grape. The blend has an attractive copper-yellow shade. The nose is at first subtle and precise. On swirling fruit notes of pear bush peach and apricot become apparent. After a brisk direct attack typical of a spirit free from additives the body is rounded and subtle on the palate. Intense fruit flavours are balanced by the understated wood aromas in the finish. This is a characterful cognac made from the forgotten folle blanche grape which accounts for less than 1% of the appellation’s current plantings. Pairing toasted artisanal bread with smoked salted butter carpaccio of raw boletus mushrooms walnut oil and cocoa nib. The crust of the bread gives off a unique scent that suggests a blend of chestnut honey and hay. Rumour has it that olive stones are used in the baking which takes place in traditional wood-fired ovens. The scent is even more remarkable when the bread leaves the oven or is reheated. It struck me as an obvious match when i discovered le singulier’s aromatic richness.
