Habitation Saint-Etienne HSE Sauternes 2013 50cl 41 °
Habitation Saint-Etienne presents a new vintage with a finish in ex-Sauternes casks.
This vintage has benefited from more than 8 years of aging in the purest tradition of old HSE rums, then a finish in barrels of Château La Tour Blanche, 1er Cru Classé of the Sauternes appellation for nearly a year.
We find all the aromatic richness of the meeting of Sauternes and rum with intense and fruity notes around passion fruit, orange peel and apricot.
The Count of Mauny, from the Breton nobility, married the daughter of a planter of Rivière Pilote, South of Martinique and founded his estate in 1749. The plantation is located in a land renowned for its beauty and favourable climate.
Pioneer brand of high quality plantation rums, the La Mauny distillery was one of the first on the island to produce agricultural rum. In recent years, Daniel Baudin, Cellar Master and Christian Vergier, consultant oenologist, have been working to refine the quality of the distillery’s old rums. For them, generosity, roundness and aromatic exuberance are at the heart of the La Mauny style. La Mauny rum got its Martinique AOC (Protected Denomination of Origin) in 1996.
