Description

A De Fussigny Millésime 1988: a Shining Example of Fins Bois

The A De Fussigny Millésime 1988 Vintage Cognac forms part of a small range of superb vintages from this craft Cognac house. Created entirely from Fins Bois eaux-de-vie, this expression has been bottled at a slightly higher ABV of 43% for a fuller flavor. The vintage Cognacs from Fussigny have been personally selected by the Master Blender and stand for  “rarity, quality, elegance and outstanding aromatic concentration”.

The Ugni Blanc grapes for this release were harvested in a single year, making this a fabulous snapshot of the Fins Bois region in a time gone by. 1988 saw harvests affected by rainfall which was not ideal for many grape growing regions - however, the resulting wines were noted for their powerful aroma and structure. 

Located on the banks of the Charente river, the A de Fussigny estate's distillery and cellars date back to 1814, rich in a history of traders passing by on barges, transporting the precious eaux-de-vie and wine that have made this region so famous. The 200-year-old cellars here allow the aging process to take place in a stable humid environment, during which the Cognac can develop all the character and quality which represent the hallmarks of this brand.

Presentation of the Bottle

The presentation is delightfully simple, yet oozes luxury. A traditional-style Cognac bottle, whose only nod to the delights hidden within is the label that clearly states its year of birth. Encased in a polished wood presentation case, it forms a luxurious package which is sure to impress. This vintage Cognac would be the perfect choice as a gift for the connoisseur, or perhaps for someone with a 1988 birthday or anniversary.

How to Enjoy

We recommend you enjoy this fine vintage neat in a tulip glass, sipped slowly to fully capture every delicate aroma. Make sure to save it for when you have the time to truly savor all the sensory delights it offers.

About A de Fussigny Cognac

Located in the historical center of Cognac, France, A de Fussigny Cognac was established in 1814 on the banks of the iconic Charente River. The brand pushes the idea of modern luxury, incorporating tradition, authenticity and craftsmanship with modernity and innovation. The estate's 200-year-old cellar has a particularly humid environment thanks to its proximity to the river, meaning the maturation process produces a high quality and unique character to Fussigny’s Cognac. The estate boasts a selection of Cognacs from all growing terroirs, but focuses primarily on distilling eaux-de-vie from the prestigious Fine Champagne region (Petite and Grande Champagne), utilising the rich soils to concentrate on high quality and a distinct flavor profile. Using ancestral expertise and savoir-faire, the estate's seasoned cellar master blends the finest selection of eaux-de-vie to produce a particular finesse to each flavor, adding a complex character to each individual Cognac.

A de Fussigny Cognac has a no-plastic policy, ensuring they do not use or create plastic waste for their packaging.
