Normandin Mercier Tres Vieille 1914+

The average age of the cognacs in this extraordinary Grande Champagne assemblage is at least 70 years, the oldest dating to 1872 when the Normandin-Mercier house was first founded. What little remains of this original stock continues to age in very old oak, undisturbed. The combination is a truly outstanding cognac with profound aromas and a subtle, soft "rancio" in its perfectly balanced rich, long taste of incomparable smoothness. Its 40% alcoholic strength is achieved entirely naturally, with no requirement for dilution. The simplest of labels understates the quality of this cognac.
