From Burie with Love

Back in the Borderies! And first review for a 70’s cognac from this cru. The last Borderies I tried from Grosperrin was really convincing by the way.  This one comes from Burie and has been bottled at 49,5%. Let’s go! 

Colour: Dark amber, orange lights. Irregular heavy tears.

Nose: Full of heathery and floral notes at first. Intense perfume on blood orange and rose water. Hints of spiced notes on black pepper and cardamom. Sharp and vivid profile. Full of citrus shades. Noble wood scents and briny green olive notes in the background. Nice nose but I was expecting something a bit more expressive to be honest.

Palate: Oily texture with dry aftertaste. Great patine on nutty notes, especially almond paste. Great warm spiced notes on cumin. Hints of vanilla too. Dry texture in the aftertaste, but quite a round profile now, as you get nice pastry notes.

Last Notes: Obvious violet notes (Borderies you know), but kind of Bourbon shades with violet sweets scents. It gets fresher notes with air. Hints of bitter chocolate notes too melted with fresh lavender scents. Back on the palate, you find some rich buttery, and honeyed notes. Great mouth length by the way. A little of oak influence in the aftertaste, but nothing too strong here. It ends with orange zest marmalade and Earl Grey tea.

Intense dry (following my first impression: sharp and vivid) Borderies with a charming palate and a great nose. A little lack of precision for the nose part, and maybe a little lack of depth too.

My very subjective note: 89/100
