Hine has released two 1983 vintage cognacs: Jarnac-matured and Early-Landed. Fewer than 50 bottles remain of the pair and stock has been allocated to major Hine markets including the UK, USA, China, Taiwan and Russia.

 

The Cognacs are distributed by Pol Roger in the UK.

 

Honorary chairman Bernard Hine said: "The personality of these Grande Champagne cognacs are the result of a good summer in 1983. On the nose the Jarnac-matured 1983 has hints of wood, spices, leather and nuts with a round, full-bodied, exceptionally long palate.

 

"The 1983 Early-Landed is round and balanced having developed its richness from the humid ageing conditions in Bristol. On the nose, hints of fig, crystallised fruit, gingerbread and honey with a long velvety finish."

 

The 1983 Early-Landed was shipped in fine-grained French oak casks to Wickwar, near Bristol, at the end of 1985 to gently develop and mature in damp English cellars.

 

Hine 1983 Jarnac-matured is available at Vintage House, Old Compton Street, London W1 at £359.95 a bottle and at The Churchill Bar, Hyatt Regency London -The Churchill, Portman Square, London W1 at £45 a 50ml measure. The 1983 Early-Landed is available at Berry Bros & Rudd Ltd, London SW1 at £285.00 a bottle.
