Description:
To honour Thomas HINE, Eric Forget, HINE's Cellar Master created Homage, a unique blend of three Early Landed Grande Champagne vintage cognacs (1984, 1986, 1987) matured in oak casks in the United Kingdom together with some extra old cognacs aged in HINE's cellars in Jarnac.

First impression: intensely floral

Sensory journey: velvety and long with hints of citrus fruit and orange peel so characteristic of old cognacs aged in England. On the palate there are dominant notes of citrus fruits followed by a hint of mushrooms which shows the ageing in very humid cellars.

Blend: cognacs coming mainly from grapes picked in Grande Champagne together with a few exceptional Petite Champagne cognacs. All aged for a minimum of 10 years.

Homage is the quintessence of HINE's style.

Producer Information

In 1791 young Thomas Hone left his home in Dorset, England to seek his fortune in France. He chose the Cognac region, perhaps because his family, living on the coast, had engaged in the common practice of smuggling cognac.
This was the time of the Revolution in France, and Thomas was arrested as a spy and imprisoned in the ancient Château of Jarnac.
He was soon freed again and married Françoise Elisabeth, whose father owned a cognac company in Jarnac. He had married into a business that was to become his career and his obsession. He became a noted connoisseur, respected for his integrity and famous for the demands he made on his suppliers.
Over the years, he raised the art of making cognac to new heights, continuing to develop the business, to which, in 1817, he gave its present name: Thomas Hine & Co.
When he died, in 1822, he left more than a prosperous business. His legacy was a name already known and appreciated around the world for the exceptional quality of its cognacs.
In certain years, when the favourable climate has yielded an exceptional harvest, Hine sets aside a cognac drawn exclusively from the Grande Champagne region.
Experience, handed down over the centuries, enables Hine to detect the qualities that will create a true vintage cognac.
Over the years, Hine has built up an unrivalled collection of old vintages, of which a limited quantity is released each year.
For any given vintage, the climate of the year and the storage conditons influence the taste and the ageing process of the cognac, making each vintage unique...
The cognacs, never sold at less than 20 years of age, are especially prized by connoisseurs.
