Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
Brillet Très Rare Single Grande Champagne Cognac is a very unique cognac. Made from a small batch of the same exceptionally rare cognac, patiently and naturally aged in barrels made from oak from the Limoges area, until its full maturity and then stored in 25 litre demijohns. The temperament as well as the opulence of this great cognac is testiment to the extraordinary quality of the eau de vie distilled at the beginning of the 20th century. (Confirmed by an expert appraisal February 19, 1999).
Tasting: High degree of "rancio". In the mouth, it has an incomparable richness and length and unequalled tasting qualities. Delicate, elegant, and rounded with a long lasting flowery aroma. Alas, it will be very difficult to find such cognacs in the future.
Availability : A small number of demijohns are still available for a “happy few”, rare, privileged customers.
An outstanding cognac.
About Brillet J R Cognac
Proud of its family tradition, Brillet Cognac insists that the history is entirely linked to that of cognac. As early on as 1656, Guy Brillet installed his first alembic (the classic still) at his property in the Grande Champagne. This was the introduction of the double distillation process that creates cognac to this day. The Brillets live off their philosophy that things made with care are more valuable, sticking to traditional techniques of production and packaging. Their motto is not to impress through high maintenance or expensive containers, but rather through a humble and high quality aesthetic: a real family business!
