Description

A Petite Champagne Vintage Cognac from 1979

At 48° proof ABV, the Lhéraud Vintage 1979 Petite Champagne Cognac is a powerful offering from this craft Cognac House. It is crafted with Ugni Blanc grapes, and as the name suggests, this is a vintage Cognac from the Petite Champagne terroir of 1979 - in other words, it really is a little bit of history…

The ethos of Lhéraud Cognac is both traditional and unique. The owners, Andrée and Guy, are committed to their trade, creating Cognacs with both passion and skill, and working hard to introduce their quality wares to countries around the world. It's this very reason that the range of vintage Cognacs from Lheraud is becoming highly sought after in all four corners of the globe.

This 1979 vintage Cognac is certainly no exception and can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. It is a fine example of craftsmanship.

The Petite Champagne has chalky soil that is more compact than the Grande Champagne cru, but still produces exceptional Cognacs with a lengthy finish.

Lheraud 1979 Petite Champagne Cognac Bottle and Box

You only need to look at the packaging to realize that this vintage Cognac is a testament to the passage of time and its importance in the Cognac maturing process. The label is personally signed and arrives in a striking black decanter with a black wax seal. The labels are ironed on to the bottles and the wax made on a nearby stove.

Lhéraud Cognac is the definition of handmade. It is lovingly wrapped in an aged muslin cloth, and boxed in a gorgeous black leather box embossed in silver. The bottle is carefully laid down in straw-colored raffia. Also included is a handwritten letter from the Cellar Master himself, detailing the finest intricacies of this Cognac.

Serving Suggestions

For those who enjoy the power, try it neat - perhaps allowing it to warm gently in your hand. It's equally delicious over ice, and pairs beautifully with strong coffee or a favorite cigar.

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.
