This rare Borderies 33 years is actually much older than its guaranteed minimum age. This cognac comes from a smallholding in the Borderies, which was sold by its owner in 1980. This holding therefore no longer exists, and this was the last testimony. This cognac comes from a difficult, clayey and siliceous terroir, lands that the winegrowers here qualify as friendship . The harvest was done by hand, and this cognac was distilled in a small 3 hectoliters still, heated with wood and charcoal. Aged on clay, in a cellar located below the road, only 188 litres remained in the small 350-litre barrel. \n \nAmber colour. On the nose, a lovely expression of candied fruit, ginger and pastries, like a morning in a bakery. Some notes of undergrowth, refreshed by scents of white flowers, iris, daffodils, but also violet. On the palate, the attack is soft, very greedy, with a buttery side. The violet emerges, quickly complemented by spices, Sichuan pepper, candied ginger, then light notes of mushroom. Beautiful elegance, extended by an exceptional length for a cognac grading only 41 Â¡ 2.
