Finest French Cognacs: HINE “Grande Champagne” Cognac Will Roll Out Out Single Vintage “Early Landed” Cognacs (Video)

In an exceptional year HINE’s Cellar Master Eric Forget may decide to set aside a few casks of Grande Champagne cognacs to be aged as single vintages. The vines need dry, sunny weather in the days leading up to harvest time. If the weather has been fair throughout the growing season, it is likely — but by no means sure — that the resulting cognacs will become single vintages.
HINE ships some of its single vintage cognacs to the UK after they have spent several months ageing in new oak barrels in Jarnac. These are known as HINE’s Early Landed cognacs.
