Eye: Solid copper.

Nose: The soft, generous dominant note reveals a fragrance of plum, red fruit and sandalwood. Slowly, a roundness of candied fruit blends with the robust character of leather.

Palate: Subtle notes of acacia honey join forces with a delicate touch of rancio. The mellowness of ripe fig melts on the taste buds, complemented by just a hint of truffle.

Baron Otard Collection du Roi Cuvée No.2: Single Batch Perfection

The second of the Collection du Roi series, this rare single batch comprises eaux-de-vie of very old Grande Champagne, personally selected by the cellar master at Baron Otard. Upon its discovery in the Paradis cellars, this liquid was declared so exceptional in taste and bouquet that it had to be immediately bottled. Only 288 decanters of Baron Otard Collection du Roi Cuvée No.2 will ever be released for sale. Bursting with complex notes of sandalwood, leather, plum and fig, this exceptionally rare Premier Cru Cognac is sure to leave a lasting impression the few lucky individuals who will have the privilege to taste it. 

The house of Baron Otard Cognac dates back to 1795, when Jean-Baptise Antoine Otard, grandson of the Scottish Baron James Otard, returned from to France from a period of exile in England during the French Revolution. Coming from a family of winemakers, Jean-Baptiste was passionate about eau-de-vie and reputedly developed his own Cognac during this period. After returning to his hometown, he was able to purchase the Royal Château in Cognac at auction, saving the historic landmark from demolition. Here, behind dense stone walls and with a humid microclimate provided by the River Charente, Jean-Baptise launched his own Cognac company, then known as Maison Otard. Today the Château is a tourist attraction and houses a vast collection of casks containing the eaux-de-vie which will become Baron Otard Cognac. 

Presentation of the Bottle

Each crystal decanter containing this rare expression has been mouth-blown, hand-cut and gilded. The stopper - created in the image of a gold royal crown - has been carved by hand from a single block of crystal.

The presentation box, resembling an antique cabinet, features two wide doors that open up to slowly reveal the vessel inside. Finished in leather, silk and gold leaf, this package is the essence of luxury.

About Otard Cognac

With an ancient tradition tracing back to the Middle Ages, and to the great Norwegian Viking Ottar, this Cognac dynasty has an incredibly unique history. Around the same period, the iconic Chateau de Cognac was built on the banks of the Charente, and was largely associated with the French monarchy. Eventually, the two histories would merge with the arrival of the Cognac Maison Otard, founded in 1795. Today, the Chateau is the home of Baron Otard Cognac, who are amongst the most recognized in quality. The elegant teardrop bottles are a beautiful symbol for the simultaneously traditional and modern values of Cognac Otard.
