1719 XO Collection Privée N°88 Cognac
Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
1719 XO Collection Privee N°88 Cognac
The 1719 XO Collection Privee N°88 Cognac contains the finest eaux-de-vie produced exclusively from Ugni Blanc grapes grown in the producer’s family vineyard in the heart of the Grande Champagne. The name of the Cognac alludes to its vintage; it is the result of a single harvest in the summer of 1988, a stunning snapshot in time of the Premier Cru. After distillation in a special copper alembic still, it has been carefully aged in Tronçais oak barrels for more than 25 years, revealing a wonderful richness and softness.
The name of 1719 Cognac has been taken from the very building that is the heart of the family estate. Founded by Pierre Phillipe Joubert, the family production of fine wines and spirits has continued to be adhered to for over four centuries. Back then, and still true today, 1719 Cognac is all about creating exceptional eaux-de-vie that showcase the sumptuous aromas which have made the Premier Cru synonymous with quality.
Today, the ethos of the house remains as steeped in tradition as it always has. Cellar Master Jean Phillipe Boulay takes full advantage of the exceptional selection of very old Cognacs that are contained within the cellars of 1719 Cognac; every Cognac produced is a Grande Champagne delight, with no blending of those with different ages or from different estates.
