Hennessy White 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
Appearance: Bright honey, much lighter than the Hennessy VS or VSOP
Nose: simple, not too aggressive, very subtle; even a full inhale revealed a very gentle fruit and flower bouquet.
Palate: the perfect combination of age and elegance. A fine blend of subtle qualities : the aromas intermingle and none is overdominant
Finish: short and simple with lots of sweet tones
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.
