Tasting note

Nose: Unexpected depth and maturity for a Cognac from the 90s, starting with ripe fruit such as apricots and mirabelle plums. These fruity aromas are complemented by darker notes of mocha and chocolate. Accents of fragrant cedar, sandalwood, light tobacco and a hint of citrus essence underline the elegant character of Cognac.

Palate: Impressive. A dynamic palette of aromas. Sweet notes of fruit and honey harmonize with creamy croissant and cake flavours. The heavy body and oily texture of Cognac lead to a long, delicate finish with dark chocolate and macadamia nuts.

About Grape of the Art

Grape of Art is an independent bottler that specializes in Armagnac and Cognac single casks and is made up of five partners: Oliver Gerhardt, Christian Maier, Leonard Stumpf, Sascha Junkert and Robert Bauer.

Their shared preference for high-quality spirits in cask strength led to the initiative of this tribe of five meeting for the first time at a blind tasting at a rum and whisky group in Stuttgart. During the tasting, they quickly discovered their shared enthusiasm for the outstanding quality and variety of Armagnac in particular. From then on, they immersed themselves in the world of brandy and realized that there were very few bottlings on the German market that met their quality standards.

In an effort to share the diversity of the world of spirits with existing rum and whisky aficionados, Grape of Art combines its expertise by releasing exceptional single cask bottlings - each with a contemporary twist and an emphasis on modern art through bottle design and labels. The selection of state of the art barrels is a top priority. Designing the bottles with a fresh and modern image is also an important aspect that sets the Grape of Art collection apart from others. The team works closely with the designer Theresa and invests a lot of time and energy in the design of witty bottles and finely tuned labels.

The art of tasting

At a meeting with many hospitable producers from the Cognac and Armagnac regions, they were able to enter the warehouses and taste the distillates straight from the barrel.

They bring their individual strengths and skills to the project, forming a cohesive and complementary team that, despite different tastes and spiritual focuses, almost always has the same favorites in a blind tasting.

When selecting a barrel, however, at least 4 out of 5 members of the group usually have to be enthusiastic about what they are tasting in order for the Grape of Art quality promise to be kept. After touring the barrel cellars and leaving the producer's premises, the five take home samples of the best barrels. At home, these are then divided up and each team member tastes them again blind and impartially, along with reference bottlings for themselves.

In the final round of tasting, the five then come together again to taste the barrels and make the final decision. With this approach, the emotions of the lager and the influence of age, brand or alcohol content fade into the background and objectivity increases. And although each team member takes on different responsibilities in selecting the barrels and designing the labels, they always make the final decision together.

With such a rigorous tasting process that guarantees a high-quality selection and a fresh, new aesthetic that gives traditional spirits a contemporary twist - what more could you ask for from an independent bottler?
