I never took notice of this cognac, mistake!
I never took notice of this cognac, what a mistake! I somehow memorized that the Gautier line wasn't great but I was wrong. This hors d'age comes at a great price, in a beautiful low key bottle. Absolutely surprising to me, I will purchase a second bottle for sure
About Gautier Cognac
Gautier Cognac is amongst the oldest Cognac houses, with a very unique location. Gautier is based in Aigre on the Osme river, and ages in an 18th century water mill. Aigre is also referred to as the "Little Venice" of Charente. The proximity to the water and the resulting humidity and temperature in the cellars gives the cognac a recognizable taste. Maison Gautier unites ancient history with a modern view of the Cognac market. Cognac Gautier caters to both professional Cognac connoisseurs and aficionados as well as younger consumers that like to experiment with Cognac and try out new and trendy cocktails.
