Single vintages have been our signature for decades, stepping off the region’s blending tradition. Each vintage is a liquid snapshot that captures the essence of a particular year, echoing the elaboration of fine wines and champagnes, and is only possible in years when nature provides optimum conditions for remarkable expression.
Another unusual choice enables us to perpetuate a highly atypical approach to ageing: Early Landed vintages. The distinctive feature of these cognacs is that they are sent in cask to the United Kingdom to be matured in very different temperature and humidity conditions to those found in our Jarnac cellars. This twenty-year cross-channel sabbatical infuses the eaux-de-vie with a mellow, more delicate patina imbued with aromas of candied orange. Having a sip of the same vintage, aged in Jarnac or the United Kingdom, is always an astonishing experience, so distinct are their flavours.
