Giboin Millesime 1974 Cognac
70 cl, 43%

An extraordinary, well aged and delicious Cognac from the enigmatic producer, François Giboin .

Working with a tiny 13.5 hectare vineyard around his home, name L’Hermitage, Giboin has a well earned reputation for producing exceptional Borderies Cognacs. François only sells about 7,000 bottles of his own stock each year, which represents about 20% of production and stock. Another 20% is kept on to age further, another 20% made into pineau, and the remaining 40% sold to larger Cognac brands.

This particular bottling was distilled by François’s father, Michel, back in 1974. The spirit was produced using an old fashioned wood direct-fired alembic still, a style virtually extinct these days. The spirit was then aged in barrels until 2005, before a further aging in glass demijohns in Giboin’s cellars. The spirit was then bottled in the spring of 2017.

The result is a Cognac that delivers rich tobacco leaf, dark oak, succulent dried fruits, rancio, cinnamon, nutmeg, treacle, pastry, leather, caramelised apples, honeysuckle and slight violet.

A spectacular vintage Cognac, nearly peerless in its quality.
