Hennessy Paradis Cognac
All the grapes used to create Hennessy cognacs are born of the unique soil of the Cognac region surrounding the River Charente. Ugni Blanc grapes are harvested, crushed, fermented, and then distilled according to strict practices perfected over time.
Region: Cognac, France
Nose: Honey, floral notes, truffle and mild spices fill the palate in an explosion of flavors. Very soft hints of cardamom and cinnamon, as well as candied fruit give way to fragrant notes recalling dried roses or sweet briar rose jam.
Palate:floral notes of jasmine and honeysuckle burst forth, underlined by a layer of soft red berry intensity. Paradoxically, suggestions of spicy notes rise then vanish, leaving richness on the palate.
Richard Hennessy founds the House of Hennessy in 1765, in Cognac, France. With his partners, he succeeds in establishing a thriving business exporting brandies, mostly to his native Ireland, and England.
