96–100 pts.: 6/9/2006

An initial aroma of yellow fruit and spice; after further air contact a stunning bouquet of tobacco leaf, tea leaves, burnt orange rind, combed cotton and grapefruit emerges. The palate entry is gently sweet and grapy; by midpalate the taste becomes intensely raisin-and-guava-like. Concludes with incredible finesse and tropical fruit lushness.

Medium to deep amber in color, the aromas start with distinct lactic notes (the beginnings of rancio?) followed by prunes, raisins and violets. The full, lush body brings a very dry, sophisticated, complex and well-balanced palate showing citrus zest, wildflowers, sandalwood and sage, and as if that weren’t enough, a slight fruitiness (plums?) follows. The finish is long and dry. Not a brandy with which to make an Alexander. Sip this one neat — no water required.

Walnut brown in color, this brandy has a perfumed nose with notes of violets, nutmeg and cinnamon. The body is big and silky, but the palate is somewhat disappointing since it doesn’t live up to the promise of the nose — it’s light in the mouth and just doesn’t have the complexity the aromas promise. The finish, though, is absolutely glorious — long, surprisingly fruity and more complex than the rest of the experience put together.

Exceptionally pretty and brilliant bronze/burnished/topaz hue — ideal clarity — it shimmers in the glass; the nose at the pour is subtle, showing mere hints of sinewy oak and toasted almond — with a bit of swirling and aeration, this aroma begins to unfold in the second sniffing as more assertive scents of wood resin, grape must, and light toffee gain footing — yikes, by the third whiff this aroma is getting truly serious as further layers of pine, vanillin, and taffy come on board — after nine minutes of air contact, the various components meld into a singular aromatic thrust that’s complex and muscular yet agile — one of G-R’s benchmark bouquets for me…

: October 28, 2000

…the palate entry is sublimely full, assertive without being aggressive, and oaky — the midpalate stage focuses on the perfect balance between the alcohol, the dried, tangy fruit and the soft, velvety, resiny oak influence; the aftertaste is very long, complex, layered, sweet and woody; yet another world-class effort for the dynamic duo at G-R; impressive by any brandy standards and one of the two or three best spirits I’ve sampled this year, period; a classic.

: November, 2006

Seamless, velvety, rich, and complex from start to finish; sensuous flavors of toffee, vanilla, fig, and candied walnut; an exquisite brandy.
