Nose: Lifted nose of dried flowers, dates, peach, apricot, almond and spice.

Palate: Lively palate entry, delivering flavours of dried apricot, almond and spice, with subtle hints of honey. Excellent balance. The flavour profile fans out gently over the back palate, finishing spicy with a slight prickle. Warming aftertaste of almond, apricot and spice.

Description

Paul Giraud Elegance Cognac

Elegant by nature, Paul Giraud Elegance is a 6 year old Cognac that surprisingly qualifies as an XO Cognac. One of the youngest in the Paul Giraud range, it is a lively blend of eaux-de-vie, that offers a complex array of aromas, alongside a lingering aftertaste. Meaning, it is sure to leave a lasting impression, long after the tasting. With both fruity and spicy notes dominating the flavor profile, this Cognac provides excellent balance and warmth that can be enjoyed whatever the occasion.

Based in the prestigious Grande Champagne area, the Giraud family has been making Cognac since the 1650s. Noted for its style and elegance, Paul Giraud only produces single year Cognacs; it does not blend from different years. Specializing in the bottling of very old, first class Cognacs the brand follows traditional techniques when it comes to harvesting the land and distilling their wines. Credited for the subtlety and the delicate bouquet of their spirits, Paul Giraud is a lesser known Cognac house to look out for.

Presentation of the bottle

Showcased in a frosted bottle, Paul Giraud Elegance Cognac offers exactly that - pure style and elegance from inside out. The pale golden color of the Cognac contains almost water like hues, making it stand out next to other Cognacs in your collection as Cognac is typically a shade or two darker. Arriving with an accompanying presentation box, this Cognac serves perfectly as an affordable yet luxurious gift to someone with sophisticated taste.

How to enjoy

A vibrant Cognac like this one delights when used in the preparation of cocktails. Get your creative juices flowing by mixing up a cocktail of your choice - using Elegance Cognac as the cocktail base. Alternatively, this Cognac can be appreciated on the rocks as a refreshing aperitif. Sharing Cognac as an aperitif amongst friends, in the right environment, will only optimise the enjoyment of this Cognac even more. It is the perfect accompaniment to a sunny afternoon in the garden.

About Paul Giraud

COGNAC PAUL GIRAUD & Fils is a family-owned estate located in Bouteville, a small village in the heart of Grande Champagne, the premier cru of Cognac. The estate has been passed down from father to son since 1635. Paul Jean Giraud, born in 1952, is the 10th generation to lead the domain. In 1975, Paul Jean and his father founded Cognac Paul Giraud, and the brand was established in 1976 with the beginning of bottling. For five years, Paul Jean developed his sales in France before beginning to export in 1980. Currently, their cognacs are distributed selectively in France, in fine grocery stores, wine shops, and restaurants, and are exported to more than 35 countries around the world. In continuation and transmission, Paul, son of Paul Jean (11th generation), works alongside his father. They share the same passion and have a common vision for the sustainability of their know-how.
