Eye: Deep mahogany.

Nose: Spicy, masculine aromas. The smell of tobacco, leather and cigars comes to mind. This transforms into spicy notes of clove and pepper. White and dried fruit appear, and a wonderful rancio.

Palate: A complex Paul Giraud Cognac which has a long and elegant finish. The initial flavor is round and full-bodied.

Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne

Description

A fine Grande Champagne, artisan Cognac

The Tres Rare Paul Giraud Cognac is a 40 year old spirit, making it the second oldest Cognac of the range. Its blend consists of the most supreme Grande Champagne eaux-de-vies of the collection, and is classified as a ‘Hors d’Age’ Cognac. This denominates the Tres Rare as one of the highest quality Cognacs available, due to its lengthy maturation process. The Giraud family have listened to the eaux-de-vie as they age in the cellars, waiting for the optimum moment across various generations to bottle it and make history. It is complex, as you would expect from this prestige terroir, and is the perfect hedonistic Cognac to ignite your senses.

The Paul Giraud Cognac maison have built their reputation on preserving a fine heritage; on passing pearls of wisdom about the Cognac making process from one generation to the next, in the heart of the Premier Cru. In a region that is optimum for creating exceptional blends, the Giraud family authentically master their Cognac using a technique that does not descend from assemblage. Harvested by hand, the Ugni Blanc grape rises from the lime-rich soil of the region; overlooked by the castle of Montmorency-Bouteville. The Tres Rare is then aged in Limousin oak barrels for up to four decades.

How to enjoy the Paul Giraud Tres Rare Cognac

A fine Grande Champagne Cognac should be enjoyed neat; taking in its flavors on every level, and with each of the senses. Enjoy it with your fellow Cognac lovers, with a cigar. It is optimally served at around 16 to 17 degrees Celsius. The bottle is simple and slim like all of those at the small Cognac producer of Paul Giraud.

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.
