An old presentation of Delamain's massively popular Reserve de la Famille cognac, made entirely from grapes grown in the Grande Champagne region of Cognac. We estimate that this was bottled sometime in the 1980s.
An old bottling of 3 star (now known as VS) Cognac from Lucien Foucauld. The house was founded back in 1847 and only uses the Ugni Blanc grape as the base for their Cognacs. We estimate this was bottled in the 1920s.
The jewel in the crown of the Beaulon range, Extra Rare is a simply stunning cognac, blended from some of the oldest eau-de-vie at the chateau's disposal. Magnificent depth and extraordinary nuances of flavour.
A 1980s bottling of 1950 vintage Hine. Hine cognacs that have been aged for over 30 years tend to be softer in style than their younger bottlings, but with a real richness and complexity that is hard to find replicated elsewhere in the region.
Michel Forgeron was established in 1977, though his family had owned the property since the turn of the century - presumably originally blacksmiths (the English translation of 'Forgeron'). Aged for at least 45 years, this is a blend of their finest Cognacs.
