Following a decade working in the London wine trade for Corney & Barrow, Berry Bros. & Rudd and then his own business, Dominic Park decided in the early 1990s to move to France and create a new cognac house. Maison Cognac Park was born to make straightforward, unadulterated cognacs presented in simple packaging. In essence, the idea was to offer an alternative to the stereotype of over caramelized brown cognacs sold in flamboyant crystal decanters or frosted glass bottles. It was a fortunate period to enter the cognac market when prices of eaux-de-vie were at their lowest. Dominic started by acquiring a bedrock of unblended spirits aged between two and sixty years in Tronçais oak casks. The Vielle Fine is 60% Grande Champagne and 40% Petite Champagne. Some might consider this a cigar blend. Although often cited as complementing each other, strong tobacco can overwhelm a delicate Cognac, and so this spirit was deliberately made fuller and richer both on the nose and palate. And is the perfect accompaniment to a fine cigar. Bottled in a heavier version of the traditional cognaçaise bottle. Average age, 35-45 years.
