Growth area & soil: Bons Bois
If you ever yearn to be able to take a walk back in time, then tasting the Lheraud Vintage Bons Bois 1973 Cognac is a way in which to do this. This full-bodied Cognac is from the Bons Bois terroir harvest from the year 1973, making it not only unique, but a little part of Cognac history.
Bons Bois is the smallest terroir of the region - and the least known. Such a Cognac certainly shows off exactly what the soils in this area impart upon the grapes they yield - it's a real treat for all of the senses. The Cognac is beautifully presented in a mysteriously dark colored bottle and black presentation case. This makes it a real talking point when brought out in company, and of course, it would make a delightful gift.

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.
