Tasting review

Eye: Glimmering amber with mahogany reflections. 

Nose: Bold, with perfect balance. Richly perfumed, with white flowers rising from the glass, eventually leading to toasted oak, leather and rancio. 

Palate: Long on the palate. Very elegant and floral, with more delicate and discreet oak. Earthy spices lead to a seemingly endless finish. 

Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne

Secrets of the Past: Michel Bureau Le Secret Cognac

Sourced from Petite Champagne, Michel Bureau Le Secret Cognac was distilled in a small Charentais still by Alphonse Bobin over 60 years ago and matured in 300-liter red barrels. This forms part of a range from Michel Bureau Cognac which features age-old eaux-de-vie bottled after being handed down from generation to generation. The full name of this release, ‘Le Secret des Dames-Jeanne d'Alphonse’, references the secrets held by Cognac distillers of the past and the mystery of knowledge handed down. 

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

Bold design, featuring an angular bottle with a deep punt and natural wood stopper. The real centerpiece, however, is the presentation case in the shape of a trunk with stunning leather details. 

How to Enjoy Michel Bureau Le Secret Cognac

This Hors d’Age Cognac is the perfect match for a cigar, or simply served alongside an espresso after dinner. Pour into a tulip glass and wait for a least a minute to allow the most exceptional rancio flavors to develop before you take a sip.
