Hine Domaines Bonneuil 2008 Cognac
Bonneuil 2008 is an unblended single estate cognac from a single harvest that provides the purest and most accurate expression of the Grande Champagne’s chalky terroir. Our guiding philosophy is to remain as close as possible to the wine itself and to reveal the distinct character of the Premier Cru cognac soils from which the vines draw their identity.
Bonneuil 2008 hails from a vintage that delivered a joyful and well-rounded harvest. Steeped in the light of an Indian summer sunset, The Beach Boys’ Kokomo rings out like a feel-good hymn in perfect response to the liveliness of the young eau-de-vie. The leisurely summer stroll continues with aromas of fresh cranberries, a gentle tension and the irresistible smoothness of mountain honey.
The extraordinary calls for a little risk here and there. Try it frappé with oysters in the dozen, a plate of Pata Negra ham or slices of sashimi. Chilled and almost syrupy, the cognac doesn’t lose its taste; instead, its flavours unfurl little by little, the richness created through distillation on fine lees blending superbly with these culinary delights.
