Tasting Notes:


This very rare cognac “Borderies 33 years” is in fact a lot older than its minimum guaranteed age. It originates from a small producer in the Borderies region who has since sold out in 1980. This cask is the last remnant and witness of the property. This cognac is from a difficult, siliceous and clayish  terroir which local winemakers describe sneeringly as “friendly”. It was harvested by hand and distilled in a wood and coal heated, small pot still of 3 hectolitres. Aged on earth ground in a cellar , there were left only 188 litres in a small cask of 350 litres originally…It is at the cask strength left by all these years…Amber colour. On the nose, a beautiful impression of “confit” fruit, ginger, and pastries fresh from the baker early in the morning. Hints of forest floor freshened by white flower perfumes, iris, daffodils, but also violet (The rare signature aroma typical of Borderies).On the palate, at first there is softness and buttery lusciousness. Violet appears, followed quickly by spices, Sichuan pepper, “confit” ginger, then small notes of mushroom. Beautiful elegance stretched by an exceptional length for a cognac of 41.2 ABV.
