Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Lheraud Vintage 1979 Grande Champagne Cognac is a powerful, complex, yet well-balanced vintage year Cognac from the premier cru of the Cognac terroir. At 48° you can appreciate where the power lies. But in an almost mystical manner, the skills of the family team at Lheraud Cognac have used their magic to produce a finished product that takes the drinker on a roller-coaster ride of the senses.
The liquid is tantalizingly concealed in the dark colored bottles that have become a signature feature of the house's vintage offerings. The Cognac itself dances before the eye, teases the nose, before exploding upon the palate with flavor after flavor revealing itself. And just when you thought it could no longer surprise you, the finish brings further delights to the fore. A wonderful addition to any Cognac collection, or perhaps the perfect gift for the connoiseur.
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.
