Here is a a quote from LMDW:
Located in the golden triangle of Grande Champagne, the Pouyade vineyard has for five generations produced wonderfully full Cognacs from the Ugni Blanc varietal that beautifully illustrate the motto on the family coat of arms, “Climb higher to see further”.
Nose: Very rich and appealing nose. This is a dram you can lose yourself in. A deep and complex sweetness with lots of fruitiness - tropical and citrus like. With time it takes on a mild earthiness, and I find nuts and a hint of oak. Vanilla and mild caramel. A near perfect nose.
Taste: Again rich and complex. The same elegant and rich fruitiness as I found on the nose. Hints of berries and black fruits, black pepper and almonds.
Finish: Very long finish. Some earthiness added now, as on the nose. Wet leaves and mushrooms. The mild spiciness remains. Somewhat dry in the end, but not over-oaked by any means.
Comment: A marvellous cognac.
