Maison de Cognac à Saintes
1974 | Petite Champagne | 0,70 L | Cognac | Cognac
This vintage Cognac comes from a family of winegrowers in the region of Gémozac, Charente-Maritime, owners of an estate in Petite Champagne. The family produce cereals and also owns vineyards, which are nowadays organically farmed. Their vines grow on chalky soils. I bought this batch from one of the sons, that his father had produced 40 years before. It was originally a batch of several 559 litre barrels, which were stocked in the dry cellars of the ORECO until they were transferred to our cellars.
