Très Vieille Petite Champagne "Confluences" cognac pasquet
At the confluence of gourmandise, elegance and venerability: this Très Vieille Petite Champagne.
Paul, Pierre, André... Three first names, three expressions and three stories of Petite Champagne brought together here.
Old gold with amber highlights
Instantly tangy with exotic fruit, especially banana compote.
Clever notes of mango and flambéed bananas. A pastry and fruity delicacy that is reminiscent of a famous sugarcane spirit.
But let's stay at the confluence of the grape and the Charente limestone. Very heavy empyreumatic notes, this is undoubtedly a strong coffee blend. A hint of sweetness on the very ripe white melon too. One perceives all the nobility of the eaux-de-vie implemented with the scent of noble wood that permeates this nose.
Well, it is undoubtedly rancioté.
Unctuous and acidic texture. The creaminess of a whole milk yoghurt, the exoticism of a roasted pineapple. Still a nice bitterness on the ristretto, the tight coffee. A delicious juice.
The length stretches out on a very wet rancio, somewhere between Bordeaux cepe and soggy undergrowth. The cocoa closes the palate, which never fails to surprise you.
With a little more air, we find a very heady cognac, notably marked by orange blossom. Still the banana compote.
The palate picks up the acidity perceived beforehand with clever notes of watermelon and plantain, with sometimes a hint of confectionery. The fruitiness persists and signs on the Melba peach. A few bursts of dry, dusty walnuts, the kind stored in old wooded roofs, the kind that garnish salads at family celebrations.
Silky finish on almond milk, nougat and elderflower.
