In 2013 Hine released an anniversary Early-Landed 1983 Vintage, as a birthday and anniversary bottling. Few bottles were made of this impressive 1983 Hine Vintage cognac. In the world of cognac and fine wine, aged vintages in peak condition are a great rarity. Bernard Hine on 1983 Hine, Early Landed Cognac: “The personality of these Grande Champagne Cognacs were the result of a good summer in 1983. The 1983 Early-Landed is round and balanced having developed its richness from the humid ageing conditions in Bristol. On the nose, hints of fig, crystallised fruit, gingerbread and honey with a long velvety finish. ” Over the centuries, the Hine family has acquired the intuitive skill of judging when an individual young cognac has the potential to develop into something very special. In each exceptional year, Hine set aside a few casks of the finest Grande Champagne cognacs to mature in the 18th century cellars beneath their offices in Jarnac or to be shipped in cask to the United Kingdom, and matured as Early-Landed cognac. The 1983 Early-Landed was shipped in fine-grained French oak casks to Wickwar, near Bristol, at the end of 1985 to gently develop and mature in these damp English cellars. Just like great wine, the character and taste of a Vintage cognac will depend on the climate of that particular year, as well as cask and storage conditions during ageing. Hine makes little, but the best. Their Vintage cognacs are released at a minimum age of 20 years and are available in very limited quantities. They are always especially sort after by connoisseurs and cognac lovers around the world.
