db reccomends: Hine Bonneuil 2005

HineProving it’s not only the wine industry that places a premium on terroir is Cognac house Thomas Hine & Co, which has added a vintage expression to its range, Domaines Hine Bonneuil 2005.

Just 18 casks yielded 9,000 bottles of the Cognac, which was produced using grapes from Hine’s 70-hectare estate in the village of Bonneuil overlooking the Colinaud valley in the region’s most prestigious, chalk-rich Grande Champagne area. Reporting on the dry, sunny conditions in 2005, Hine drew a comparison with the 1953 growing season, which produced “one of the best vintages of the 20th century.”

The new expression is being offered on allocation in the UK through Berry Bros & Rudd, Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange via distributor Pol Roger Portfolio. Depending on the quality of the growing season, Hine aims to release further single vintage expressions under the Bonneuil label in future.

RRP: £80
