The ninth barrel and final edition of Jean-Luc Pasquet’s L’Espirit de Famille series, which honours the stories of the families that make Pasquet Cognac.
This bottling pays homage to Noël, who along with his wife Marie-France farmed ten hectares of vineyard in Sainte-Lheurine, a village found in the Petite Champagne cru.
A single barrel Cognac that was filled either in late 1994 or early 1995, the spirit was bottled in August 2021, with a final age of around 27 years.
The end result is a Cognac with notes of orange rind, baking spices, honeyed pastry, spiced bread, sultanas, patisserie cream, peaches, grapes, toffee, nutmeg custard, clean oak and blood orange.
Only 876 bottles were produced, with the spirit bottled at 46.4% ABV. A fitting conclusion to this superb series of spirits.
