Vintage: Single Year Neat

A Vintage Cognac is a Cognac from a single year and a single harvest, not a blend from different eaux-de-vie like an XO or a VSOP. It is also referred to as a Millésime Cognac. We commonly know this from Whisky as “single barrel“, which means the spirit comes from one single source: one year, one estate, one barrel.

The difference between Cognac and Whiskey is that for Cognac, the art lies in the blending. Vintage Cognacs are quite uncommon, although it is a trend that is becoming more and more popular. It's actually a very special gift to find a Vintage Cognac of a birthday, or one that marks an anniversary.

In order for a Cognac house to be allowed to bottle a Vintage, there are legal obligations that need to be followed. The National Cognac Bureau (BNIC) has to verify that procedure is respected. Once the Cognac producer has decided to set aside a selection of barrels for the Vintage designation, an official from the BNIC comes and seals the barrels and then makes sure they are locked away for restricted access only. It is important that the bottling date is written on the label, as this indicates for how long the Cognac was actually aged in the barrel for, because Cognac stops aging once bottled.

    The Borderies eaux-de-vie develops a certain floral and spicy note after 12 years of ageing. On the nose: Some notes of violets, orange blossoms, followed by ginger. Hints of vanilla. On the palate: Fine almonds, some raisin. The finish is long and balanced.

    Dobbé tasting note: This “Brut de Fût” cognac is well balanced, with fine nuances of leather and dried fruits (walnuts and hazelnuts). This full-bodied, well-rounded cognac has spicy tones, which are followed by subtle hints of flowers and black fruits.
