Bache Gabrielsen Cognac

The flagship Cognac of the house, the Bache Gabrielsen Hors d'Age Grande Champagne Cognac is, as the name suggests, made exclusively from eaux-de-vie from the premier cru of the region. This award winning Cognac is over 50 years in the making, with the oldest in the blend dating back to 1917, and the youngest from around 1960.

The Cognac is a true delight for all the senses. From the dark tones that show its age, through the wonderfully rich bouquet, onto the palate that has excellent balance between fruit, flowers, and spice. It's powerful from the first moment, and feels deliciously soft in the mouth. Presented in a delightfully simplistic bottle and wooden presentation case, this is a Cognac for the connoiseur. And it would certainly be well received as a luxury gift.

A great Hors d'Age that used to be cheaper!

So this Hors d'Age is really a solid one by Bache Gabrielsen.. it used to be a little cheaper but that wasn't really necessary / reasonable. Nutty notes, great nose.. the palate is slightly weaker than the nose, a very solid finish. Value for money: I would have given 5/5 stars with the previous price, now we can make it 4/5! Nice work Jean-Philippe (celler master at Bache)

One of the greatest old cognacs

Bache Gabrielsen Horsdage is a great cognac, and very good value for money (it was even cheaper in the past.. they somehow now upped the price because the demand is so high I assume).. in a beautiful wooden box. The only downer is that the wooden box often gets damaged during transport for a reason.. but hey, it's the bottle that counts. Great palate, beautiful nose.

Q&A for Bache Gabrielsen Hors d'Age Grande Champagne

Sal 2013-04-28

Appearance: Brown amber color with a rich viscosity. Nose: Initial fragrance of waffles smothered with butter and maple syrup, the waffles then give way to fruit notes of raspberry sauce and dried mission figs.Flavor: The initial attack comes on very strong with flavors of honey and French oak, as the alcohol spiked the honey and oak give way to forest floor flavors of truffle and earth. On the long, smooth finish, the oak comes back, this time accompanied by the raspberry sauce detected on the nose. Overall Impression: For a blend of eaux-de-vie that are 50 to 100 years old I was hoping that the transition of flavors would be a little smoother, but for $200 you are definitely getting a lot of bang for your buck. This blend is for a cognac drinker who wants to smell and taste the cellar vs. the vineyard.

Excellent cognac, my wife received a bottle for Christmas from our son and tried it for the first time in today. Very well done House of Gabrielsen.

You can feel the wood, smell the nuts. Beautiful dark colour - a great Hors D'Age cognac, from Bache Gabrielsen. It's true, this cognac has a fantastic balance. And the price of under 100 € (really?) is very good. Some say it's one of the best cognacs in the world, especially our Norwegian friends, of course..
