Energy, pressure and concentration are the backdrop for this dialogue between vine peach, beeswax and white flowers. Developing warm aromas of freshly toasted bread, this eau-de-vie imposes its presence through lively citrus notes and fresh spices.

Bonneuil 2010 is an unblended single estate cognac from a single harvest that provides the purest and most accurate expression of the Grande Champagne’s chalky terroir. Hine's guiding philosophy is to remain as close as possible to the wine itself and to reveal the distinct character of the Premier Cru cognac soils from which the vines draw their identity.
The extraordinary calls for a little risk here and there. Try it frappé with oysters in the dozen, a plate of Pata Negra ham or slices of sashimi. Chilled and almost syrupy, the cognac doesn’t lose its taste; instead, its flavors unfurl little by little, the richness created through distillation on fine lees blending superbly with these culinary delights.
