In years of an exceptional harvest Hine sets aside a few casks of its finest Grande Champagne cognacs to mature in the 18th-century cellars beneath its offices in Jarnac, or to be shipped in cask to the UK to be matured as ‘early-landed’ cognac. Its vintage cognacs are released at a minimum age of 20 years and are available in very limited quantities.

Tasting notes:

1986 Jarnac-matured: Powerful bouquet with fruity notes of white peach and hints of spice, with much complexity and a long finish.

1986 Early-Landed: Richness and extensive floral aromas with vanilla notes, hints of cedar wood and mountain honey on palate, long finish.

Most studies suggest they're considerably better for the environment. They’re more convenient, too, if you want to keep your wine fresh for more than a couple of days.
