EXCLUSIVE WORLD PREMIER
Releasing his last ever Cognac expressions, Jean Aubineau bids his final farewell to the remaining Grande Champagne Cognac left in the barrels of his family Estate – where he has worked for the majority of his adult life. Saving 100 litres of the remaining Cognac for his children and grandchildren, the bottles left to be sold are more precious than ever with the contents now incredibly sparse and all the more special. With a new supply now in stock, we’re honored to be offering the very last bottles exclusively to Cognac Expert customers. Get yours now to be one of the last to own Jean Aubineau’s long-standing treasures – emblematic of a lifetime of passion, hard-work and unrivalled dedication.
Located in the village of Malaville within the Charente region there is a winding country lane, down which you will find a small estate. Somewhere amongst this estate resides Jean Aubineau, but to find him you must first locate the old-school Peugeot that acts as a clue to lead you to the charming house where Jean lives. If you are lucky enough to find him, then you will have the pleasure of the company of a talented and wise man who is almost in his 90s and who began distilling Cognac from the tender age of 27. We visited Jean on a fresh, spring morning at the beginning of April to discuss Jean’s life, his future and most importantly, his Cognac.

XXO stands for 'extra extra old', and is a brand new category that was officially added to the description of Cognac ages in 2018. Just as with the other age descriptions of Cognac, VS, VSOP, and XO, an XXO Cognac consists of eau-de-vie that's been aged within French oak barrels. But in the case of an XXO, to qualify the minimum length of aging is 14 years. This makes an XXO Cognac the oldest official rating a Cognac can hold.
Our range of discounted Vintage Cognacs include treasures from 1971 through to 2010. Whether it be in celebration of a birthday or another sentimental reason, the Cognacs from our vintage collection serve beautifully as symbolic gifts to someone who associates with the significant vintage year.
