Deau Vintage 1988 Bons Bois Cognac
Deau Vintage 1988 Bons Bois is a limited edition fine quality Cognac, exclusively available in very small quantities. Aged for generations in Limousin oak barrels, the eau-de-vie rests in the Deau cellars for decades, where the nearby Charente River provides cool moisture to the atmosphere. A slow aging process is ensured, with the result producing a beautiful tasting Cognac that reveals a combination of aromas including white mushrooms, wet leaves and saddle leather. Its earthy scents give way to a fruity sweetness which swims across the palate with grace.
Bottled straight from the cask, this 1988 Vintage is part of the Millesime Vintage collection. Deau’s vintage offerings are created with eau-de-vie from one single year. Since Cognac is normally produced with a blend of several different years, this is fairly uncommon and makes the collection all the more precious and exclusive.
The house of Deau is a four generation family-run brand, that owns and operates its own vineyard, thus controlling the quality of its products from grape selection to vinification. The company oversees the entire production process, from the vine to final bottling, with the utmost rigor.
Presentation of the bottle
Dressed in a traditional style decanter, the presentation of Vintage 1988 is in keeping with the classic nature of the Cognac it beholds. Having endured a lengthy maturation process, this Cognac certainly rich in history and its labelwork and accompanying, wooden display box reveal the product’s story with pure elegance. Customization of the wooden box is available with an engraving of the plaque upon request.
How to enjoy
This vintage deserves to be enjoyed in its purity. Pour into a tulip glass, neat - at room temperature. Let the Cognac breathe in the glass for a few moments before taking a sip. The narrow neck of this type of glass allows the aromas to evolve to their utmost potential. Savor the experience as the patchwork of flavors take you on a blissful journey of the senses.
