Description

Cle9ment Cuve9e Home8re is the top of the Cellar Master's Selection Series and features the highest rated vintage rums of the last fifteen years aged in French Limousin Barriques and re-charred Bourbon Barrels. Each vintage brings its own unique flavor profile, which makes Cuve9e Home8re one of our more complex rums with tremendous flavor and a long lasting finish.Aromas of warm biscuits and almond butter continue to evolve into baking spice. Nice viscous clarified butter mouth feel delivers flavors of pemmican fruits, hazlenuts, chocolate and a peppery oak complexity around the edges. The finish is highly nuanced and textured, wood notes with fruit, tarragon, licorice root, floral notes, then and a dry sweet brine for several minutes.

Producer Description

Martinique has long had the reputation of having the best terroir for sugarcane cultivation, long before Home8re Cle9ment had the imaginative idea to press sugarcane to produce Rhum Agricole. Domaine de l'Acajou was purchased in 1887 at the peak of the sugar crisis. The introduction of sugar beets and the increasing availability of cheap South American sugar lead to the collapse of the Martiniquean sugar commerce.As a result, the local economy, which was driven by the principle cash crop of sugar, was in shambles. Many planters were out of work and took to the streets rioting against the bankrupt plantation owners. What once was a rich and lively island was quickly mired in economic despair. At this time, Home8re Cle9ment was a very popular member of the Martiniquean community and the mayor of Le Francois. He purchased the prestigious sugar plantation known as Domaine de l'Acajou just 3 kilometers from the center of Le Francois. This 43 acre estate was considered one of the best sugar plantations on the island of Martinique. But as it was stuck in a poor and stagnate sugar economy, it was unfortunately forced into bankruptcy.Home8re Cle9ment made the necessary investments and transformed one of the island's most prestigious sugar plantations into a producer of world-class Rhum Agricole. He had the planters return to the fields to harvest sugarcane once again, but not to refine sugar. His idea was to press his quality estate grown sugarcane to extract first-pressed aromatic and flavorful sugarcane juice to distill pure rhum. Inspired by the enjoyment of great brandies while studying in his early years in Paris, Home8re mimicked the distillers of the great Armagnac's of southwestern France to perfect his method of rhum production known today as Rhum Agricole.

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.
