Dupuy Vintage 1966 Tentation Cognac: the Power of Slow Maturation
This rare snapshot of a long-gone harvest represents another stellar release by Dupuy. The Dupuy Vintage 1966 Tentation Cognac has been aged for over 40 years, giving it an exceptional depth of flavor and rich tannins that can only come from an extended maturation period in French oak. Created to satisfy the curiosity of all connoisseurs in search of the exceptional, Dupuy vintages represent the most remarkable eaux-de-vie discovered by Cellar Master Jean-Philippe Bergier. They are isolated in sealed barrels and the BNIC closely follow their progress to guarantee the year of authenticity. The distillation year can then be written on the label of the bottles and sold as such to connoisseurs.
Auguste Dupuy created Cognac Dupuy in 1852, succeeded by his son Edmond on his death in 1895. Only ten years later, two Norwegians - Peter Rustad and Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen - took over the house but decided to keep the name. At the same time, they created their own Cognac brand for the Scandinavian market, which is better known as Bache-Gabrielsen Cognac.
Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen’s great-grandson Hervé runs the company today and is responsible for putting Dupuy Cognac back on the map. Cellar Master Jean-Philippe Bergier lends his skill and innovation to the mix, and together they consistently produce eaux-de-vie in the traditional manner of the previous centuries with a focus on quality and design. The Bache-Gabrielsen family are sole owners of the company, conveniently housed in a stunning mansion in the heart of Cognac. While keeping an eye on tradition, as an economist, Hervé also knows the importance of staying relevant in an ever-changing world, bringing a modern look to his products and reaching out to new markets around the world.
