Notes from the Maker:
Suave yet delicate, Rare is a classic expression of the House of Hine and a benchmark for our entire collection of cognacs. It reinterprets the fruity flavours characteristic of the white wines produced from Charente vines, particularly from the Grande and Petite Champagne varieties.

Ageing: Hine Rare VSOP is a blend of about 20-25+ different eaux-de-vie (the Hine website says twenty, but the bottle packaging says over twenty five) made from Ugni Blanc grapes from the Grande Champagne (60%) and Petite Champagne (40%) appellations that are aged six to twelve years in French Limousin oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:

The Color: Light golden copper.

The Nose: Orange resin, oak and vanilla.

Mouth: Ginger, chocolate, orange and oak.

Finish: Very long caramel raisin spice bite.

Awards/Reviews:

93 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2020

"Inviting and complex on the nose. Well balanced and nicely mellow on the palate with a smooth, silky texture and finely balanced spice and floral notes, intertwined with lovely elements of grape."

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"Look for a soft topaz hue and pleasing vanilla and dried apricot aromas. The palate is spicy and a little astringent, with vanilla, cinnamon and clove winding into a drying finish that leaves a faint trail of espresso, leather and ginger. Made with grapes from the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne regions. "

"Hine Rare VSOP is delicate, elegant, fresh and light. There are no brooding complex notes in Hine Rare VSOP and is thus approachable and a great introduction to VSOP cognacs. The complexities of an aged cognac are clearly evident but not overpowering. We also tasted Hine Rare VSOP with a dash of chilled ginger ale. The result was a refreshing cognac quaff." - Cognac.com
