Hine Rare VSOP

An Underrated Cognac of the Highest Quality

A ‚Äč‚ÄúFine Cham¬≠pagne‚ÄĚ Cognac, Hine Rare VSOP from the House of Hine is a rich yet del¬≠i¬≠cate cognac made with 25 dif¬≠fer¬≠ent eaux-de-vies of the Grande and Petite Cham¬≠pagne grapes aged in French oaks, the old¬≠est being 12 years.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Known to pro¬≠duce supe¬≠ri¬≠or eaux-de-vies due to its unique ter¬≠roir, a Fine Cham¬≠pagne cognac is pro¬≠duced with grapes grown in the chalky, lime¬≠stone-rich ter¬≠roir of Grande Cham¬≠pagne and Petite Cham¬≠pagne. Hine Rare VSOP is a Fine Cham¬≠pagne cognac with a blend of 25 dif¬≠fer¬≠ent eaux-de-vies, aged in light¬≠ly toast¬≠ed French oak bar¬≠rels for as long as 12 years.

Encased in a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful faceted bot¬≠tle, Hine Rare shines a soft topaz hue when poured. On the nose, del¬≠i¬≠cate flo¬≠ral notes of jas¬≠mine min¬≠gle with under¬≠tones of orange rind and vanil¬≠la. On the palate, the dis¬≠tinc¬≠tive woodsy pro¬≠file of its French oak bar¬≠rels shine in this cognac, pro¬≠vid¬≠ing a veil of spiced oak through¬≠out the tast¬≠ing. A smooth and round entry builds to flavours of dried apri¬≠cots, molasses with notes of caramel and vanil¬≠la. The fin¬≠ish is of dark, gin¬≠gery spices and oak that lingers for a long time.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Enjoy sim¬≠ply. Pour neat or with a splash of water or ice. If you love food pair¬≠ings as much as we do, we rec¬≠om¬≠mend this VSOP with Kaviari Kristal Caviar, the rich and robust cognac enhances the creami¬≠ness of the caviar to cre¬≠ate an utter¬≠ly deca¬≠dent fla¬≠vor experience.

For lovers of cheese boards and char¬≠cu¬≠terie, this VSOP is best paired with more mature cheeses such as Fourme D‚ÄôAmbert, Camem¬≠bert, or Brie de Meaux. If you‚Äôre one for char¬≠cu¬≠terie, explore this cognac with Castaing‚Äôs Dis¬≠cov¬≠ery Set of 5 pates and tell us your favorite!

THE ONLY COGNAC FOR THE BRITISH MONARCHY

A his¬≠to¬≠ry well entwined with roy¬≠al¬≠ty, cognac is loved by nobles around the world. The House of Hine was award¬≠ed a Roy¬≠al War¬≠rant by Appoint¬≠ment to Her Majesty the Queen Eliz¬≠a¬≠beth II and remains the only offi¬≠cial sup¬≠pli¬≠er of cognac to the British monar¬≠chy to this day.

The adven¬≠tures of the House of Hine start¬≠ed with Thomas Hine almost 250 years ago. A young Eng¬≠lish¬≠man who found him¬≠self flee¬≠ing the French Rev¬≠o¬≠lu¬≠tion was impris¬≠oned at the Ch√Ęteau de Jarnac in France. What short¬≠ly ensued is his mar¬≠riage to one of the daugh¬≠ters of his hosts and in 1817, Mai¬≠son Hine was estab¬≠lished along the banks of Char¬≠ente, France.
