Tasting review

Eye: A dark amber color that indicates its age.

Nose: This exquisite and mature Hors d’Age Cognac boasts the luxurious aromas of the Grande Champagne. Its bouquet offers a perfect balance between fruit, flowers, and spices. It is a beautiful blend of earthy, wintery notes and light, summery ones.

Palate: On the palate, you first experience a powerful, rich, almost buttery taste–typical for the Grande Champagne Cognac. Bache Gabrielsen Hors d’Age has an unmistakable cinnamon finish, complemented with hints of nutmeg and red fruit.

Bache Gabrielsen “Beyond Age” Cognac

The Bache Gabrielsen Hors d’Age is a high-end Cognac from the Grande Champagne terroir, and considered to be the “pièce de résistance” of their selection. It consists of a mix between the Ugni Blanc and of the rare Folle Blanche grape, and is exclusively cultivated in the Grande Champagne growing area.

The dark amber liquid mirrors its age; the Hors d’Age is a blend made up of eaux-de-vie that has been aged in Limousin oak barrels between 50 and 70 years. The oak barrels give Cognac its full spice experience, and Bache-Gabrielsen use only the best.  

The oldest eaux-de-vie in the blend reaches back all the way to 1917, and the youngest to around 1960; this is undeniably reflected in the quality of the blend itself. It is a rich Cognac with plenty to show off about, and comprises the best elements of fine Premier Cru produce, such as its long finish.

The Hors d’Age is a work of art that is only available for this limited period only, and would make a wonderful gift in its stylish box.  

How to enjoy Bache-Gabrielsen Hors d’Age

Make sure to drink this Cognac neat, and at room temperature. You want to tease out every single one of those aromas…  

The slender 0,7l bottle is presented in a crafted wooden box that seems to be inspired by Scandinavian furniture design. It reflects the modern philosophy of the Cognac house; always putting quality first, and never failing to be style conscious.

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.
