Growth area & soil: Fins Bois
At 46°, the Lheraud Vintage 1978 Fins Bois Cognac is a cask strength delight, and one that would make a wonderful addition to any drinks cabinet. As the name suggests, this is a Cognac created from grapes grown in the Fins Bois terroir of the region. This growth area offers a surprisingly different taste sensation to eaux-de-vie grown in the other terroirs of Cognac. The fresh tastes and aromas of Fins Bois are becoming highly sought after by those who know their Cognac.
The artisan house of Lheraud are the masters of such vintage Cognacs. They select only the best years to be bottled in such a way, each being presented in a dark colored bottle that's becoming their signature of these offerings. This one, from the harvest of 1978, would make a great gift for anyone who loves the finer things in life.

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.
