Giboin - Millesime 1995

Giboin - Millesime 1995

Borderies

Just like his ancestors since 1830, François Giboin chooses quality. The Giboin Domaine is located in the Borderie, the smallest Cru of the Cognac area. Only a few Cognac makers release a 'Millesime', because the legal inspection on years is strictly regulated by law; only bottles with Cognac from barrels sealed by the BNIC may be marked with year mark. Giboin has only 2 barrels sealed per year. The Cognac is beautifully sturdy, with many aromas of herbs and fruits.

Ragnaud Sabourin - Reserve Special

Ragnaud Sabourin - Reserve Special

Grande Champagne

Perhaps the best Cognac house; Ragnaud Sabourin, located in the Grande Champagne since 1850. Together with her daughter Patricia, Annie Ragnaud runs this Domaine entirely according to the old family tradition. Without concessions, plenty of time is taken for all steps in the process of making Cognac. The Cognacs released are always of the same year, the age recognizable by the number on the bottle. This Reserve Spécial is 20 years old and has a very rich smell and taste.

Jean Fillioux - La Pouyade

Jean Fillioux - La Pouyade

Grande Champagne

Founded by Honoré Fillioux in 1880, in the heart of the Grande Champagne region. The Domaine measures 63 acres and is characterized by its very own style and is very popular with true Cognac lovers. For this Cognac, fourth generation Pascal and fifth generation Christophe are taking a long time to make an assembly of the right barrels, the youngest being 8 years old. The result is a surprisingly rich Grande Champagne Cognac with many aromas from marzipan to vanilla.

Rémy Martin - 1738

Rémy Martin - 1738

Cognac

In 1738, only 14 years after Rémy Martin first produced cognac, King Louis XV of France gave Rémy Martin a royal license to plant new vineyards. The license was a recognition of the craftsmanship of Rémy Martin. It is a milestone in the history of this cognac house, which it celebrated with the creation of Rémy Martin – 1738 Accord Royal. Aged in toasted oak barrels, this premier cognac embodies the traditions and values of Rémy Martin.

Chateau Montifaud - Michel Vallet, 15 Y

Chateau Montifaud - Michel Vallet, 15 Y

Petite Champagne

Michel Vallet is the 5th generation of the owners of Chateau Montifaud. Within the family, the tradition is that each new generation makes its own assembly of the best barrels from their cellars. Searching for balance between fruit and oak, Michel chose barrels of at least 15 years old with solely Petit Champagne Cognac. The Cognac has many fruity tones, but also clear influences of the French Limousin oak. Vanilla, dried plum and herbs are well recognized.

Meukow - XO

Meukow - XO

Assemblage

The story began with Auguste-Christophe and Gustav Meukow, 2 brothers from Silesia, who were sent to France in 1862 by czar Alexander II to buy Cognac. They never returned and started their own trading house in the west of the Cognac region. Meukow still buys high quality Cognac and bottles it in their characteristic bottles with panther. This XO assembly contains only Grande Champagne Cognac and is very soft, fruity with many deep aromas such as coffee, leather and tobacco.

Giboin - XO Royal

Giboin - XO Royal

Borderie

The François Giboin Domaine is located in the Borderie, the smallest Cru of the Cognac area. Started in 1830, one still makes traditional Borderie Cognac here. The clay subsoil makes the Cognacs from this region a bit rustic and sturdier. The XO Royal is an assembly of various ages from the cellars of Giboin. The accent is Cognac from the seventies, mixed with slightly younger Cognacs. The XO has rich floral notes, leather, tobacco, nuts and dried fruit.

Château Montifaud - XO

Château Montifaud - XO

Petite Champagne

Only 13 Cogac houses may bear the name 'Chateau'. Château Montifaud, originally located in the Petit Champagne, had been owned by the Vallet family since 1866 and, despite the fact that the chateau itself was bombed down in 1944, Montifaud, with 120 hectares of vineyards in the Petit Champagne and 5 in the Grande Champagne, is still entitled to use the term' Chateau'. Despite the legal minimum of 6 years, this XO is 30 years old and made from grapes from the Petit Champagne.
