HINE XO ANTIQUE Cognac
Hine Antique XO Premier Cru is a blend of more than 40 cognacs sourced from Grande Champagne - the finest cognac cru - and all aged for a minimum of 10 years. Antique was first created by George Hine in 1920 and nearly a centuary later, is hailed as one of Hine's signature styles.
Only the finest young wines end up creating Antique; carefully and slowly distilled in classic pot stills, the resulting cognac was left to develop in Limousin oak barrels. The rich, complex spices and velvety roundness of the style were drawn from this maturation period. Only once each cognac was aged to perfection was the final Antique blend created.
