“To sing, to laugh, to dream,
To walk in my own way and be alone,
Free, with an eye to see things as they are,
A voice that means manhood—to cock my hat
Where I choose—”

The House of Hine stands on the banks of the River Charente, deep in Cognac country. It is one of the oldest houses in Jarnac with over 250 years of history.

Hine has recently upgraded its XO from Fine Champagne to Grande Champagne (as well as its packaging), meaning that all the eaux-de-vie used in the assemblage are from the best region of Cognac. This bottling is aged a minimum of 10 years.

Tasting note: Burnished copper colour. Several minutes in the glass yields moderately intense, semi sweet scents of dates, vanilla, marzipan and cedar. Medium bodied, soft and round with a slightly creamy texture, the palate is gently spicy and semi sweet; dried fruit (prunes, dates) and spice flavours are perfectly balanced against fine drying tannins. Finishes clean and warming with a subtle aftertaste of roasted nuts, vanilla and spice. A nicely integrated XO. 40% Alc./Vol.

Cyrano de Bergerac, his plumed hat and poetic speech are the witnesses to a final, lingering mouthful that never ceases to surprise. In a blend of mature eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne, Antique sets out to be different. A perpetual conversation between the fruit and oak reveals notes of hazelnut, ripe quince and mild spices, appearing amid accents of fig tart and blonde tobacco. Mischievous complexity comes into being, along with sleek vivacity.

The Hine House

Has stood on the banks of the Charente River in Jarnac, France for over 250 years. It is one of the oldest houses in Jarnac and serves as the company’s headquarters. In 1962, the house was granted a royal warrant from Queen Elizabeth II, as suppliers of cognac. Today it is still the only cognac house to hold this honour.
