This vintage Cognac comes from a family of notaries who have lived in Cognac for several generations. This Petite Champagne 1973 was part of the estate of the father, who had bequeathed its stocks to his wife and son, a notary like himself. The father had bought this lot in January 1974 from one of his clients, who was then the president of one of the most important Cognac houses. This lot therefore comes from the distillery and the cellars of a house that is still famous today. Unfortunately, on the death of the father, the son and his mother no longer got along and the estate was bogged down for many years, until we proposed a solution. This is a very "sentimental" Cognac, which was stored under state control on 25 January 1974 in an old and very damp cellar on the banks of the Charente, which has since become the Cognac Museum.

Old gold, almost amber colour. The nose is marked by greedy notes of ripe quetsches, mirabelle plums, spices (cardamom, turmeric, black pepper) and exotic woods (warm cedar, sandalwood). Around all this, we find the characteristic rancio of old Cognacs close to maturity. On the palate, again this fruity (ripe plum, prune, cinnamon chocolate) and spicy (nutmeg, tobacco) delicacy.
