Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
The Lheraud Vintage 1969 Petite Champagne Cognac is one of a range of old vintages produced by this traditional house. No prizes for guessing that this comes from the harvest of 1969, and that the eaux-de-vie contained within was grown in the Petite Champagne terroir of the region.
Age specific offerings are still somewhat of a rarity in the world of Cognac. This, along with the fact of its delightful taste, makes it a real asset to any drinks cabinet. And it would be gratefully received as a gift by any Cognac connoiseur. As with all of the houses' range of vintage Cognacs, it's presented in a dark colored bottle - a fact that only adds to the mystery and temptation of the liquid nestled within. Overproof at 48°, it's powerful enough to enjoy in a number of ways: Neat, on the rocks, or even with a few drops of water to enjoy a subtle different in the taste sensation. Whichever way you choose, take your time. Your taste buds will thank you.
