Hine Cognac Antique XO
Located in the heart of the Grande Champagne, the premium wine growing area of the Cognac region, the house of Hine produces one of the most exquisite cognacs since six generations. The estate boasts an exceptional 173 acres of vineyards. The house has a very special tradition of producing relatively small quantities but with a very high standard in quality. One of their trademarks is to store their vintage casks in cellars in Bristol, England. This way, the cognac goes through a uniquely different ageing process due to the humidity of the seaside town. These highly priced vintage bottles are called ôHine Early-Landed Vintage Cognacö.
The XO Fine Champagne of Hine is light on the nose, some spices and a great deal of vanilla. The taste is complex and rich, but round. The finish is long and full.
