Painturaud Frères Réserve Grande Champagne Cognac
The Painturaud Frères Vieille Réserve Grande Champagne Cognac is a delicious blend from the Premier Cru of the Cognac region. Produced from Ugni Blanc grapes harvested on the J. Painturaud estate in the Premier Cru, this Cognac has spent over a decade whiling away time in oak barrels to become the delight it is today. From the deeper hue that belies its age, through the tempting aromas and the ever-evolving palate, this Cognac lives up to all expectations - and more.
Maison Painturaud Frères really came to life in 1934, following the great phylloxera crisis, when Guy Painturaud began marketing his own Cognacs and Pineaux des Charentes under the family name. Since 2010, the son of Guy Painturaud (Jaques) has passed the baton on to his own sons. Today, the quartet Jean-Phillipe, Vincent, Matthieu and Emmanuel represent the 4th generation of family tradition and Cognac expertise. The brand embodies everything that is great about the prestigious Grande Champagne terroir, and you can expect nothing less than a careful curation of top-of-the-range, quality Cognac products.

Better enjoyed in company
Difficult task to give objective comments on the basic model, knowing how good the higher-priced cognacs of this supplier are. In its price range, one among many; in my opinion, a cognac that needs to be explored in company. In a solo tasting, it does not taste good.
About Painturaud Freres
Located near Segonzac, in the very heart of Premier Cru Grande Champagne country, Painturaud Frères Cognac has a history that can be traced back to the end of the 1800s. With 40 hectares of vines planted over rolling hillsides, the main crop is composed of the Ugni Blanc grape, with a smattering of Colombard and Montils. They also grow a small amount of red grapes – Merlot and Cabernet Franc – for production of red Pineaux des Charentes.
