Triomphe was created in 1888 by Thomas Edouard HINE to celebrate the combined efforts of winegrowers, wine merchants and scientists in triumphing over the phylloxera crisis that nearly completely destroyed the French vineyards in the preceding years.
First impression: complexity
Sensory journey: The nose reveals the exceptional complexity, exquisite finesse and extraordinary depth with subtle nuances of crystallised fruit, flower and tobacco. The palate is characterised with an incomparable mellowness, roundness and finesse and a stunning long aftertaste.
Blend: Triomphe is an exceptional blend of over 50 selected old cognacs coming exclusively from the finest parts of the Grande Champagne, the finest cru of the Cognac region. These cognacs have been aged individually in small oak casks in the cool dark atmosphere of HINE’s cellars in Jarnac, until, after many decades, they have reached the peak of maturity.
