Giboin Borderies Vintage '95 50cl Cognac
Revealing an array of complex aromatic fragrances and distinct flavors characteristic of the single year of 1995, this vintage Cognac is a true emblem of the Borderies cru and the soft soils its Ugni-blanc grapes were grown in.
With hundreds of years worth of expertise under their belt, it’s safe to say the close-knit family running Maison Giboin know a thing or two about Cognac. Based in both the Borderies and Fins bois crus, Giboin are artisanal masters in the creation of quality products characteristic of the region and subsoil. Offering a variety of unique Cognacs and Pineau de Charentes, the house of Giboin is a notable brand that deserves a firm place in any Cognac collection.
Presentation of the bottle
Vintage Borderies 1995 is available as a 70cl bottle or in the slightly smaller 50cl version. While this smaller 50cl version is an ideal gift or small gesture, as it arrives with a beautiful burgundy presentation box to match, the 70cl bottle is the perfect size when adding to your own collection. Inside the bottle, the Cognac’s copper color with golden hues shine through as it catches the light. A vintage essential for a Cognac connoisseurs collection.
