J Dupont 1988 Vintage Cognac: a Superb Snapshot of a Single Harvest
The Dupont 1988 Vintage Cognac captures the magic of a single year, harvested in the prestigious premier cru. Aged for 31 years in the finest Limousin oak casks, this Grande Champagne blend is a limited edition of only 90 bottles, making this rare and refined vintage something of a collector's item amongst connoisseurs.
Currently run by the Boindaud family domaine, J Dupont Cognac has a rich history dating back to the mid-19th century. The estate can be found in the prestigious Grande Champagne terroir and has won many awards for its Cognacs. The family cellar boasts some of the best vintages in the region, containing eaux-de-vie that are over a century old.
This particular three-decade-old vintage is perfectly balanced with rich aromas of vanilla and candied fruits. The year 1988 saw an excellent harvest with little rain and plenty of sunshine, combine this with Grande Champagne's reputation for producing eaux-de-vie that are particularly masterful at maturation, and you're onto a winner with this exclusive limited edition. It would make an excellent gift to someone celebrating a birthday or anniversary from this year.
Presentation of the Bottle
The 1988 Vintage comes in a classic and timeless design, with its copper and gold detailing perfectly complimenting the Cognac's amber tones. The unique font on both label and presentation box are reminiscent of the roaring 20s, offering an element of nostalgia to this snapshot of a single harvest. The wooden presentation box makes this vintage a wonderful gift for someone, and protects the Cognac should you wish to store it as a collector's edition.
