Description

Lheraud Vintage 1988 Grande Champagne Cognac

Take a step back in time with this single vintage expression from the Premier Cru of Cognac. Deep in the vaulted Paradise cellars at the Lheraud estate, this liquid gold has been resting, waiting for the right moment to be unveiled. Bottled at a strength of 46% ABV, the Lheraud Vintage 1988 Grande Champagne Cognac shows all the qualities you’d expect of this renowned terroir: expect citrus and fruit notes perfectly blended with floral aromas and powerful rancio. A treat for the senses, this Cognac is a rare glimpse into a time gone by.

The Lheraud family have centuries of experience with winemaking, but it was Eugene Lheraud who first took the step to set up a still in the latter part of the 19th Century. After him, Rémy Lheraud took over, and around fifty years ago it was Andrée and Guy who inherited the family estate. They also decided it was time to put the family name on their products, creating Cognac Lheraud as we know it. The name has spread the traditional way, with each owner, in turn, spending most of their time travelling the world to introduce people to their independent Cognacs. Today, Guy Lheraud still travels around 200 days a year across international markets. 

With their estate Domaine de Lasdoux lying in the Petite Champagne region of Cognac, the family Lheraud is best known for their rare and vintage cognacs, all of which are stored in the family-owned cellars. The vintage casks here can be identified by their wax seals, applied on the barrels by the BNIC (National Interprofessional Bureau of Cognac), only to be broken when the Cognac is ready to be bottled.

Presentation of the Bottle

The stunning packaging chose by Maison Lheraud is as unforgettable as the liquid contained within. The black glass features a pattern created by combining matte and gloss textures, a beautiful backdrop for the large vintage-style label covered with calligraphy text. Each bottle is sealed with natural twine and a blue wax seal, reminiscent of the seals applied to the cask it came from. A stunning black presentation box and certificate of authenticity complete this parcel. 

How to Serve 

Created with extraordinary care, this vintage Cognac deserves your full attention. Serve neat in tulip glasses at room temperature, letting it rest for 30 seconds before taking the first sip. Perfect as an after-dinner drink, or enjoyed with rich desserts.

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.
