This vintage Cognac comes from a family of notaries established in Cognac for several generations. \n \nThis 1969 Petite Champagne was part of the estate of the father, who had bequeathed his stocks to his wife and his son, a notary like him. The father had bought this lot in April 1970, thinking of reselling it at a better price a few years later, as was practiced at that time by a few well-informed individuals. Unfortunately, the oil crisis coupled with the end of the Vietnam War caused Cognac prices to collapse soon after. \n \nWhen he died, his wife and son did not get along, and the estate stalled for decades until we came up with a solution. \n \nTasting notes: \n \nAmber color. A complex, rather classic Cognac. A late summer nose with notes of very ripe fruit, taped pears and prunes. Smoky touches, burnt notes and a Christmas Pudding side (candied grapes, orange peel, nutmeg). On the palate, power and freshness (lime blossom, hawthorn), which allows you to calmly approach all its complexity. A superb Cognac, for lovers of fine, natural classics. \n \nGold medal , Cognac Master, London, 2015.
