Antiquaires Borderies Hors d A 1952 750 ml


3 bottles in stock

This is the smallest of the six crus, with 4,000 hectares of vines devoted to Cognac. The Borderies produce fine, round eaux-de-vie that are smooth and scented with an aroma of violets. They have the reputation of reaching optimum quality after a shorter maturation period than Petite and Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie. I find the most interesting thing about Borderies is, well, the geological borders. This is the only cru whose borders are completely defined with a clear cut mixture of chalk and clay dating from the Jurassic era. The soil is decidedly more decalcified but with a patchwork of chalk intermingling with clay. These Borderies are the strongest Cognac LADC has produced to date‰ÛÓbest with cigars! We call this Hors d‰۪Age instead of vintage as we cannot certify this old eaux-de-vie has been distilled between the 1st of October and the 31st of March of this supposed 1952 distillation campaign year. But the first taste confirms its long years maturing in the oak barrels. And it is beyond words.
