Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Lheraud Vintage 1973 Grande Champagne Cognac is a delightfully old, age-specific year created from eaux-de-vie from the premier growth area of the region. At 48° it's a naturally aged cask-strength Cognac, and it honestly does showcase why Cognacs made from grapes grown in the chaliky soils of the premier cru are the most sought after of all.
Powerful yet well balanced, aromatic, with a wonderfully lengthy finish, this is certainly a Cognac that will appeal to the connoiseur. Cognac Lheraud are making quite a name for themselves with their range of year-specific Cognacs - something that is still somewhat of a rarity in the Cognac world. Each of their vintages comes in what is now their signature dark colored bottle - a trait that simply adds to the mystery of the wonderful liquid housed within. A great addition to the best of drinks cabinets.
About Lheraud Cognac
The family Lheraud have been involved in winemaking and cognac production for hundreds of years, but it was only in 1970 that exportation and promotion really began in earnest. Now producing not only cognac, but Pineau des Charentes and Armagnac as well, Lheraud exports its wares worldwide – and continues to expand into more countries on a yearly basis. Today’s owners – Andrée and Guy Lheraud – concentrate on producing Cognac Lheraud strictly on a traditional basis, and continue to work tirelessly to introduce their products to more countries and communities throughout the world.
