Reviews and Ratings

1ER CRU, gift box. OTHER: The rooster is an important symbol in France, in addition to being the logo for Jean Fillioux COQ. 2017 is the Year of the Rooster, making this an even more timely gift. Though this will not be the same bottling as referenced by F. Paul Pacult, the quality he cites will be consistent with this example. OTHER: Five years old minimum. Straw yellow color; to my dismay, lots of tendril like sediment seen under the examination lamp. Visual issues aside, the initial whiffs encounter lovely, melded scent of spiced pear, cardamom and ripe white grapes; After allowing this cognac to sit undisturbed for about seven more minute[s], the second round of inhalation produce juicy, luscious and fruity aromas that are in harmony; Grand Champagne cognac at its fruity, seductive aromatic best. Entry is intensely grapey, semi-sweet, ripe and supple; midpalate reinforces the entry juiciness and youthful vigour. Finishes long, silky, tarter than I expected, and delicious. Highly recommended. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5) (F. Paul Pacult, Spirit Journal, June 2013). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
