Bache Gabrielsen Vintage Pure & Rustic Borderies Single Estate 1995
This edition to Bache Gabrielsen’s Pure & Rustic range is a limited edition, single estate vintage Cognac. Made in collaboration with "Bouilleur de Cru" Madame Marie Madeleine Vaillant in the village of Cherac, the eaux-de-vie used in the Cognac has come solely from the grapes grown on her three hectare farm in the smallest district of Borderies. The wine from the grapes was distilled in 1995 and has been aging in Limousin oak casks since that day. Only 850 bottles are available, making this a rare addition to any collection.
The Pure & Rustic range from Bache Gabrielsen has been produced by Cellar Master Jean-Philippe Bergier in close collaboration with a number of experienced distillers across the Cognac region. The collection has a modern style to it and invites you to experience a light and fresh Cognac with rich fruitiness and associations to the rural life of the region.
Presentation of the bottle:
The bottle is of a bold and contemporary shape, reflecting the modern positioning of the Cognac. The label features the story of the Cognac House’s conception below the striking and minimalist logo and product information.
Within the Pure & Rustic series, bottles bare either blue or white labels. If the label is white, which is the case here, Bache Gabrielsen guarantees that only a limited edition has been bottled and that all bottles are numbered.
