Lovely comments from Susy Atkins of The Sunday Telegraph. “A revelatory tasting today - proper mature GC cognacs with rich notes of tropical fruit (who knew?), spices oranges, toasted nuts, raisins, prunes, figs and mocha from vintages as poignant as 1914 and 1944.” #cognac#vintagecognac
"Winegrower and home distiller's cellars often contain a few barrels from older harvests, some of which could be several decades old. Some estate owners feel that it is their duty to keep a few barrels – produced by an ancestor or inherited over time – to be inherited from one generation to the next. I have always been shocked by the casual manner in which these precious liquids were treated, with unique characters often drowned out through massive blending. These precious private collections became nothing more than an extra in a play where they should have held the star roles!" By Jean and Guilhem Grosperrin.
Vintage 1991 - 20 years old: "By giving time to time by allowing it to breathe in the glass, this beautiful orange- coloured cognac will reveal its depth of aromas acquired from its 20 years of sleeping in oak barrels." Patrice Piveteau, Cellar Master
