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.
Tasting review by Bache Gabrielsen:
Nose : Wonderfully rich in fresh fruit notes, with touches of oak furniture and new leather. Palate : Continued grape, apple and mandarin juiciness. Herbaceous at points. Finish: Cinnamon, clove, and lasting sweetness of yellow plum.
