The only blend – with Noblesse – of our range, the Heritage is to be classified separately, both aromatically and historically. This cognac has reached the paroxysm of oxidation.
The aromas that have lost freshness and intensity tend towards almonds, kernels and the famous “rancio” so characteristic of very very old cognacs.
This taste is difficult to describe. It is found in old beeswax furniture or old walnut oils; it only appears after a very long aging. It can also be found in Porto, Sherry, Maury. Such an aroma is inimitable: only time does its work.
This cognac is to be enjoyed religiously, with all due respect to a lady of 70 years.

 

Paul Giraud Cognac is an old family farm located in Bouteville, a small village in the heart of Grande Champagne, since at least 1635. A family stock of old Eaux-de-vie can offer fans a complete range. They produce 100% Grande Champagne single vintage cognac and 100% single year, except for Heritage and Noblesse that are blends. The current area of the vineyard is 42 hectares, all planted in Ugni-blanc and located in the town of Bouteville, in the heart of the Grande Champagne, on chalky grounds of the Campanian and Santonien limestones.

For a very long time, they have been practising a reasoned and environmentally friendly culture. Thus, for more than 30 years, manures have been made with organic fertilisers associated with soil ploughing. In addition, a large part of the vineyard is still harvested by hand, a practice that is becoming increasingly rare in the Charentes (only four or five estates still practice it).
