The "Essential Element" series has been bottled in a magnificent Daum crystal decanter. Each of the 300 decanters is numbered and has proof of authenticity. The origin of the eaux-de-vie that makes this cognac rare and excellent dates back to the 1870s, the Pre-phylloxera days. Thinking of his family's future, our founder, Antoine Hardy, gathered several different batches. This cognac comes from the area known today as Grande Champagne. Its grapes are composed of a 100% French Colombard and this eaux-de-vie is pure and unblended at a natural strength of 41% volume. Hints of chocolate and coffee, big oak and great balance adds to the complexity. A rare cognac for those who demand the finest! When perfection is gone, c'est fini, for it can never be duplicated. Treat yourself to a taste of history.

In exceptional complexity, Perfection Lumiere is a wonderful cognac at its peak with notes affirmed chocolate and coffee. The mouth is soft, round, velvety but not heady. Its very powerful aroma is characterized by typical final notes of cigar box and nutmeg. This is shockingly fresh for a 150 year old spirit, fruity, lively, and spicy, with a feminine and elegant finish that lingers forever.

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
