Description

An Adventure with A.E Dor: The 1988 Petite Champagne Cognac

Many collectors are aware of AE Dor’s cultural standing in the world of Cognac, and their importance as a distiller in the Jarnac region of Grande Champagne. Established in 1858, the passion has been passed down through the family, earning them the nickname as the “Antiquaire du Cognac”. With its particular vintage and peculiar provenance, the 1988 Petite Champagne Cognac from A.E Dor is a rare find for both serious collectors and occasional Cognac-drinkers.

The company is renowned for its extremely wide range of vintages thanks to Amedée Eduard Dor’s hard work, hunting for the best and oldest Cognacs of the region throughout the late 1800s. A.E Dor is most famous for its ageing cellar, nicknamed “Le Paradis”, where some of its oldest Cognacs are stored in wax-sealed demijohns, a true paradise for any Cognac connoisseur.

This family of master blenders is known for their unique collections, which include beautifully presented decanters and vintages as old as 1840! What makes this Cognac so special is not only its provenance from one of the premier crus - but also its single vintage made exclusively with eaux-de-vie distilled in 1988.

This high-end blend has spent over 30 years aging in humid cellars. A must-have product for any discerning Cognac drinker.

A.E Dor’s Cognacs are often sought after because of the maturation process they go through. Left in French limousin oak barrels with a capacity of up to 500 liters, they are aged in a cellar that has been selected for its particular level of humidity, which many believe is the secret to the blender’s high quality products.

This 1988 vintage presents a beautiful floral bouquet, with notes of vanilla and cocoa.

How to Serve A Cognac of this vintage should be served in a tulip glass, neat, and left for breath for around 30 seconds before enjoying. Presentation of the Bottle In true A.E Dor fashion, the bottle is old-fashioned, traditional and elegant.

Its wax seal a subtle nod to the demijohns hidden away in “le paradis”, a true hallmark of quality, hard work, heritage and passion.

Emblazoned with the wax seal of approval, this special reserve will sit nicely in a drinks cabinet or bar shelf, to be taken down and enjoyed exclusively on a special occasion. The bottle comes with a decorative presentation case for display or gifting purposes.

About A.E. DOR Cognac

The vintage eaux-de-vie of A.E. Dor are one the few that are left from before phylloxera struck the region in 1874. Adapting to current developments in the cognac industry and the luxury market in general, the company, today headed by Jacques Riviere, have launched a new range of products that target a wider and more international group of consumers.
