Tasting review

Eye: Bright blushing gold.

Nose: Rich, mature aromas of dried fruits, soft peaches and garden herbs. A touch of oak gives structure and balance. 

Palate: Soft, with the fruits continuing from the nose. A medium mouthfeel with plenty of sweetness that lingers on the palate.

Description

Bache Gabrielsen Cuvée Anna No. 99 Cognac: a Carefully Crafted VS

Bache Gabrielsen Cuvée Anna No. 99 Cognac is a blend made up of eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois growth area with about 10% of Petite Champagne terroir added for a floral touch. The Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie is an older vintage, lending a superb depth to the final product. The Fins Bois eaux-de-vie in the blend have been matured between 3 and 8 years in French oak for extra flavor and character, significantly longer than what is required for a VS Cognac.

The Bache Gabrielsen Cuvée Series has been put together by Toralf Bølgen, one of Norway’s top wine and spirit connoisseurs, and Jean-Philippe Bergier, Bache-Gabrielsen’s Cellar Master. Each release has been named after one of their daughters; this bottle is named after Anna Bølgen, the sister of Maria, and a friend of Solène. 

The history of Bache Gabrielsen starts with Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen, a young lieutenant from Norway, who he moved to Charente in 1903 to join his friend Peter Rustad in the Cognac business. Two years later, they took over the house A. Edmond Dupuy and gave it a new name: Rustad & Bache Gabrielsen. Thomas fully settled in the region, marrying a local woman who also worked in the Cognac industry. Peter sadly passed away suddenly in 1916, after which Thomas took over the whole business, eventually passing it to his son Réné. 

Today, Bache Gabrielsen is run by fourth-generation company director Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen. While keeping an eye on tradition, as an economist, Hervé also knows the importance of staying relevant in an ever-changing world. The Cuvée series is just one example of how this company likes to look to the future and honor the next generation in Cognac. 

Presentation of the Bottle

Pairing classic glass design with a modern label, this release perfectly encapsulates the combination of Cognac tradition with a look to the future. The simple, tall bottle is perfectly offset by bright red foil and a bold, red-on-white label prominently featuring Anna’s name.

How to Enjoy Bache Gabrielsen XO Cuvée Anna No. 99 Cognac

This exuberant and surprisingly complex VS Cognac is ideal to drink on its own, or used in cocktails and aperitifs. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try it with tonic or with a splash of soda.
