Cognac La Gabare - Petite Champagne 1961Petite Champagne 1961
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 aromatic, with traces of blackcurrant and linden.
Palate: the distillation with lees has left its mark, conferring an oily, silky character. The wood and cognac combine smoothly and harmoniously. There is a scent of cedar and also of damp cellars (mushrooms, grottos with stalactites).
Magnificent Petite Champagne cognac with a great deal of depth and power!
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.
