Cognac La Gabare - Petite Champagne 1958Petite Champagne 1958
La Gabare are the first producers of vintage Cognac to have been officially approved by the authorities. All Cognacs either come from state-controlled ORECO warehouses or their authenticity has been confirmed by Carbon 14 dating at the French National Scientific Research Institute, supported by customs documents. The origin, percentage of evaporation and ageing are all verified and certified by the French authorities.
Nose: very delicate, slightly floral (acacia, jasmine). Aromas of cigar box and cedar.
Palate: we find a good balance between the alcohol and tannins and the aromas persist well. A slightly winey taste characteristic of the Petite Champagne appellation. There is a surprising presence of vanilla in the empty glass.
Each bottle of La Gabare's Cognac de Collection bearing a vintage or age also carries a guarantee on the cork certifying that bottling of that particular Cognac took place in the presence of a bailiff.
