Tasting review

Eye: Dark copper amber.

Nose: An intriguing nose with an exacerbated aroma of rancio, characteristic of very old Cognacs. Notes of cloves, pepper and vanilla are also present.

Palate: A rich and complex palate with woody and nutty flavors, it gradually develops a spicy edge for a very long and rancio finish.

Description

Héritage: A Gift Of Time

Paul Giraud Héritage is the oldest Cognac produced by the estate, having been aged for around 60 years in Limousin oak casks in the family’s humid cellars. This is an exceptionally mature Cognac, the exquisite flavor and incredibly persistent aftertaste of which is a testament to the time gifted to the spirit, it is an elite drink for true connoisseurs.

Héritage has been made using Ugni Blanc grapes grown exclusively on the family’s 35 hectares of vineyards in the heart of Grande Champagne. The Giraud Cognac House has become renowned for not only its outstanding single year Cognacs, which are considered to be the best representation of Grande Champagne, but also for its traditional production methods. The grapes are all harvested by hand, meticulously distilled in classic copper pot stills and contain no chemicals, pesticides or colouring additives, ensuring the authentic flavor of the eaux-de-vie is preserved. As a result, Giraud has received considerable recognition for the unique features of its Cognacs - superior quality, incredibly smooth taste, rich aroma and outstanding elegance.

Losing myself in Heritage Cognac

A very smooth lingering taste. A warm blow of spirit swiftly followed by the plum, caramel and lovely vanilla tones. Not wanting to wax too lyrical but this is a lovely drink to lose yourself in, it makes you think about what you are tasting and focus on a "me" moment. So wonderful this is my second bottle!!


About Paul Giraud

The location of Cognac Giraud is in the prime "1er Cru" cognac growing area of the Grande Champagne, which allows Giraud to produce an exquisite cognac range, from a 6-year old to a 50-year old cognac. The estate is based in Bouteville, and with some additional vineyards in St. Même-les-Carrières, the growing area comes to 35 hectares. The cognac house combines a strong belief in traditional methods with a modern take on cognac production, avoiding any kinds of chemicals or pesticides in their agriculture and coloring additives in the final blends. The work on the plants as well as the actual harvest of the grapes is still done manually, assuring the best possible treatment of the grapes in order to generate the highest quality for the eau-de-vie. Also, Giraud only produces pure vintage cognacs, which means that they never blend eaux-de-vie from different years, but trust in the fine differences between the annual vintages.
