Geffard Henri Vieille Réserve Carafe Millenium Cognac
An award-winning masterpiece by the artisanal experts at the Henri Geffard estate, the Vieille Réserve Carafe Millenium Cognac is a refined and rich Reserve-aged Cognac produced using eaux-de-vie exclusively sourced from the premier cru, Grande Champagne.
Thanks to the high chalk content of the terroir soil, its maritime atmosphere and microclimate, satisfaction is guaranteed with every sip in this Grande Champagne beauty. Aged for over 3 decades in the estate's ancient cellars, the Geffard Henri Vieille Réserve Carafe Millenium Cognac boasts a complex character, offering intense aromatic notes of rancio, cedar and cigar bars - flavors that can only be achieved using high-quality eaux-de-vie subject to a lengthy aging process.
The Geffard family founded their formidable estate back in 1840, passing their ancestral expertise down through 5 generations to establish themselves as a notable producer of unique Cognacs. Now run by Karine and Stephane, the Geffard estate is located in Grande Champagne itself, with every single aspect of production, from harvest to distillation and ageing, taking place on-site - ensuring each step in the creative process is carefully controlled.
