We not too long ago coated Jean-Luc Pasquet’s L’Natural 07 Cognac — and now we’re again with two further expressions, each additionally natural, and produced from 100% ugni blanc grapes grown in Grande Champagne. The distinction, as you might need sussed out, is age: L’Natural 04 is not less than 4 years previous, whereas L’Natural 10 is a decade in age minimal.

Each are 80 proof. Let’s give them a whirl.

Jean-Luc Pasquet L’Natural 04 Cognac – “The 04 is a mix of two eau-de-vie aged 4 and 5 years, aged in Limosin oak barrels, 20% of that are new.” At 4 years previous, this brandy is a bit punchy on the nostril, with a slight astringency that highlights hearty linen and floral notes, some lavender, and a lightweight grassiness. The palate is cleaner and extra immersive than the nostril would point out, providing ample notes of citrus fruit, milk chocolate, and a contact of strawberry. The herbal-linen character stays a robust through-line, although it’s by no means overpowering, even on the well-perfumed end. Finally the Cognac affords a completely approachable place to begin from which to discover the Pasquet model, providing ample steadiness all through. B+ / $60 [BUY IT NOW FROM DRIZLY]

Jean-Luc Pasquet L’Natural 10 Cognac – “The mix consists of two, completely natural eau-de-vie aged 10 and 12 years in Limousin oak barrels, 35% of that are new.” The brandy promptly shocked me as my least favourite of the trio. Extraordinarily floral on the nostril with a curious contact of maple syrup evident, that heavy lavender-linen character actually dominates, giving the brandy a large laundry room character. A lot the identical is occurring on the palate, closely perfumed and flippantly astringent, with out a lot fruit within the combine. The syrupy sweetness on the nostril is basically absent right here, with the florals touchdown a bit flat on the end. Fairly a shock. B / $92
