Description

Giboin Napoléon Réserve de Castex Cognac

Dedicated to family ancestor, Generale de Castex, who served under Napoleon 1st, this Cognac is a fine blend of eaux-de-vie distilled between 2001 and 2005. Distilled with its own lees, as well as other added lees, this distinct blend reveals notes of chocolate, grapes and dried fruit. A beautiful balance of the fruity eaux-de-vie and the oaky wooden cask of which it was aged within.

With hundreds of years worth of expertise under their belt, it’s safe to say, the close-knit family running Maison Giboin know a thing or two about Cognac. Based in both the Borderies and Fins bois crus, Giboin are artisanal masters in the creation of quality products characteristic of the region and subsoil. Offering a variety of unique Cognacs and Pineau de Charentes, the house of Giboin is a notable brand that deserves a firm place in any Cognac collection.

Presentation of the bottle

Presented in a classic bottle with deep emerald green accents, this Cognac’s regal inspiration is embodied throughout the product. With a portrait of Generale de Castex illustrated on the bottles label, it displays a strong image that is sure to stand out amongst other Cognacs on the spirits shelf. Available in both 50cl and 70cl bottle sizes, the 50cl version arrives with a matching presentation sleeve, serving beautifully as a lavish gift. While the full-size 70cl bottle, arriving on its own is the perfect addition to the Cognac enthusiasts own personal collection.

How to enjoy

Enjoy this blend neat or on the rocks. The perfect Napoleon Cognac for an afternoon amongst friends and family. Pair with a rich and velvety chocolate cake or fruity cigar as a delicious digestive following a dinner with guests.

About Giboin Cognac

Giboin is an expert producer of both Cognac and Pineau de Charentes, with 60 acres (24 hectars) of vineyards in both the Borderies and Fins Bois Cognac growing areas of the Charente. This family run, traditional brand has a history stretching back to the early part of the nineteenth century, and exclusively produces a very limited amount of Cognac per year. Using predominantly Ugni Blanc grapes, but Merlot too, Giboin strives to remain committed to the methods used by the family’s founders, and for a small house curates a surprisingly versatile and wide range of Cognac and Pineau products.

Let the Angels Take Their Share
On the face of it, Cognac as a spirit is actually quite simple. A producer grows grapes (mainly ugni blanc), makes a white wine, distills it twice, stores the distillate in new or used oak barrels,...
