The vintage eaux-de-vie of A.E. Dor are one the few that are left from before phylloxera struck the region in 1874. Adapting to current developments in the cognac industry and the luxury market in general, the company, today headed by Jacques Riviere, have launched a new range of products that target a wider and more international group of consumers.
Tasting notes by Tiffon Cognac:
This well-matured cognac has primary notes of dry apricots and ripe plum. Hints of walnut and light spices give it great force and a delicate finish with the flavor of rancio.
Tasting notes from Jean Fillioux:
Very floral nose, spring flowers, hawthorn, wild rose, acacia, with some notes of white peach and nectarine. A touch of violet bonbon. Deliciously lively on the palate with some aromas of passion fruit, lemon tart, dried apricot. Long finish with some notes...
Fine Champagne with the intensity of the dried fruit and it's complex spiciness can be explored with a sample of walnuts, dried apricots and prunes. Richness of dried fruits on the palate, length in mouth is about 10 minutes.
