2014 Vintage: 62.5%vol.
Color : very pale.
Nose: pastry, caramel au beurre salé.
Mouth: flowery and astonishingly milky. An absolutely unique organoleptic profile, an exception.
 
70cl or 35cl at 62.5% vol.
 
The Bourgoin family have a radical approach, a quest for pureness, they never assemble, colour or sweeten their Cognac. Bottling is done in vintages, plots, and in barrels. The oldest keep their full degree. The reductions (decreasing of the degree of alcohol) on the young forms of brandy are done with distilled rain water for a strong aromatic lift. All the way through to filling, by gravity, in the quadrature phase of the moon, when the depots are stabilized at the bottom, in order to benefit from the mechanics of fluids and avoid filtration.
 
Whether it is about the Brut de fût 22 years or Fine Pale, the Bourgoin family posses this quality of being able to renew and enlarge their Cognac’s field of expression, the purest of beverages, as vivid and as spontaneous as youth.
