Painturaud Frères Secrets de Famille Grande Champagne Cognac
The Painturaud Frères Secrets de Famille Grande Champagne Cognac is something very special indeed. Created to celebrate the 80th anniversary of this artisan house, it's a blend of the oldest and very best eaux-de-vie from deep within the family cellars which were laid down when it was founded. The result is something rather amazing: powerful and round, with aromas and flavors that take the taster on a rollercoaster journey of the senses. Of course, as one would expect from a Cognac of such quality, the rancio is extremely well developed, making this truly a Cognac for the connoisseur.
Maison Painturaud Frères really came to life in 1934, following the great phylloxera crisis, when Guy Painturaud began marketing his own Cognacs and Pineaux des Charentes under the family name. Since 2010, the son of Guy Painturaud (Jaques) has passed the baton on to his own sons. Today, the quartet Jean-Phillipe, Vincent, Matthieu and Emmanuel represent the 4th generation of family tradition and Cognac expertise. The brand embodies everything that is great about the prestigious Grande Champagne terroir, and you can expect nothing less than a careful curation of top-of-the-range, quality Cognac products.
Presentation of the Bottle
The presentation is as beautiful as the Cognac it holds. A delightful crystal carafe and wooden presentation cabinet, both made by hand, make this work of art one that deserves pride of place displayed in any collection. If you're looking for the perfect gift for any lover of fine things, then a Cognac such as this would certainly be very well received.
