Long-Lost Treasures: Michel Bureau Le Mystere Cognac
This stunning Petite Champagne Cognac was distilled over 70 years ago by Alphone Bobin, the grandfather of the current owners of Michel Bureau Cognac. The Michel Bureau Le Mystere Cognac is a limited-edition Hors d’Age release, showing all the classic floral, spice and ranc io notes you’d expect from a Cognac of this age. The name, ‘Le Mystere des Dames-Jeanne d'Alphonse’, refers to the mystery of opening age-old demijohns passed down for generations. Very little is known about this Cognac, but we are confident that it will impress anyone who has the pleasure of tasting it.
The history of the House of Michel Bureau dates back to 1893, when a man by the name of Victor Albert founded a vineyard near Guimps, a small village in the Petite Champagne growing region. By 1914, Victor had acquired an alembic still and started making his own eaux-de-vie. Today, Ghislaine and Jean-Luc Bureau run the company with their son Olivier. Within this small, independent family structure, they do everything from A to Z, with particular attention paid to the aging of their Cognacs. The farm is in the process of obtaining an HVE (High Environmental Value) certification and also produces wildflower honey which can be ordered directly from the producer.
Presentation of the Bottle

How to Enjoy Michel Bureau Le Mystere Cognac
We recommend to enjoy this Cognac neat at room temperature, served in a slim tulip glass. Pour it and let it stand for a full 15 minutes before tasting. Sip slowly and let the bouquet and flavors unfold and develop, tasting the passing of each year gone by.
