To honour Thomas HINE, Eric Forget, HINE’s Cellar Master created Homage, a unique blend of three Early Landed Grande Champagne vintage cognacs (1984, 1986, 1987) matured in oak casks in the United Kingdom together with some extra old cognacs aged in HINE’s cellars in Jarnac.
First impression: intensely floral
Sensory journey: velvety and long with hints of citrus fruit and orange peel so characteristic of old cognacs aged in England. On the palate there are dominant notes of citrus fruits followed by a hint of mushrooms which shows the ageing in very humid cellars.
Blend: cognacs coming mainly from grapes picked in Grande Champagne together with a few exceptional Petite Champagne cognacs. All aged for a minimum of 10 years.
Homage is the quintessence of HINE’s style.
