Darroze Grand Bas Armagnac Les Grands Assemblages 50 years Carafe 42% 700ml
$720.00 $792.00
The spectacular 50 year blend, in a stunning Carafe. The age of reason. According to the freshness and the balance of Armagnacs of this age, it is sometimes time, at the end of 50 years to stop the barrel ageing. However, the use of barrels that have been exhausted of their tannins over many years in contact with the eau de vie is still possible. The aromas of chocolate, leather and roasted notes are characteristic of these very old eaux de vie.

Paul Giraud XO Nicolette 25 years 40% 700ml
$704.00
Paul Giraud XO Nicolette 25 years - The Vieille Réserve or XO is often the favourite cognac of our Grande Champagne lovers, especially ladies. This cognac expresses all the fullness of the fruity aromas typical of a Grande Champagne, aged for a long time in oak barrels. To fully appreciate this cognac, take time, sit in a good chair and heat the glass with the palm of your hand. The trip to a stone fruit orchard can begin. At the beginning of the tasting, the aromas of fresh fruit at the beginning of summer - like peach or apricot - appear. As the glass warms, aromas of riper fruit, more oxidized by the sun, are revealed, such as plums, prunes and Agen prunes. These are the fruits of late summer: hot, matured, and stewed. At the end of the tasting, spices appear then the vanilla side of the oak barrel. Round and mellow, this cognac is easily savoured. Another remarkable point, the length in the mouth, so characteristic of the Grande Champagne. The combination with a chocolate dessert (such as a Black Forest or a fondant) is quite appropriate.

Grosperrin Cognac No.64 Borderies 52.1% 700ml
$861.00
This very old cognac comes from a joint-possession which was established at the death of the winegrower many years ago. His widow and children manage the inheritance with prudence and patience, in memory of this man. One of the grandsons took over the estate and it is now flourishing as one of the most important in the Borderies region. The Grandfather’s stock is however managed separately, and kept in a cellar in the centre of the village of Burie, located in the heart of the Borderies. We became the owners of this exceptional cognac through a certified broker. It has since then aged in our cellar in Saintes, on the bank of the Charente river, where a small water reduction was carried out over 2 years ago. Old gold colour, amber highlights. The first floral nose, typical of the Borderies expresses itself clearly, with notes of violet sweets (they do exist, in France at least!), dried flowers, spicy roses. The second nose is more profound, denser, and we distinguish an elegant rancio, but without too much woodiness, induced by the oxidation of the fat contained in the alcohol, which time has made noble. The spices are more intense, cigar boxes, liquorice, more “mature”. The attack is frank, mineral on the palate, we are immediately touched by the quality of the cognac. It develops in a powerful and yet contained way, the texture reveals itself as being quite oily. The long finish takes us back to the aromas perceived on the nose. Very elegant, a beautiful Borderies.
