Richard Delisle Vintage 1965 Fins Bois Cognac: Four Decades of Decadence
This stunning Richard Delisle Vintage 1965 Fins Bois Cognac is a blend of eaux-de-vie harvested in the fall of 1965 in the Fins Bois terroir.
After spending some 45 years in the finest Limousin oak casks, the masters at the Richard Delisle estate have exceeded expectations by producing a vibrant vintage that has retained all the original fruity flavors of the eaux-de-vie (evidently balanced by oaky notes) despite its lengthy maturation.
Presentation of the Decanter
The Richard Delisle Vintage 1965 Fins Bois Cognac comes in a traditional bell-shaped decanter with a golden stopper and golden rope around the neck of the bottle. Information about the vintage is inscribed onto the glass itself and is presented in a wooden frame, housing this masterpiece of maturation as if it were a valuable work of art.
How to Enjoy
The Cognac is at 60.4% ABV, so be prepared for an intense drinking experience. Savor this stunning vintage slowly, so you can appreciate each individual aroma. This is a decadent Cognac to be enjoyed on a special occasion -- we suggest adding a little water to enhance its aromas and ensure a smooth sipping experience.
