Details

Massougnes produced historically famous pre-phylloxera cognacs. We have dated their records back to 1730, making them the oldest firm of growers and sellers of brandies, they sold cognacs to Hennessey and many other famous houses including Augier and other correspondents of the period. The last remaining member of this remarkable family, who owned at their peak 360 hectares, is the Comtesse de la Bourdeliere. Had France not been a republic, she would have been their Queen. This is the last remaining bottle of 1805 from Massougnes and was made during the Battle of Trafalgar.

Additional Information

Distillation The quality of these great cognacs strongly suggests that the estate was well versed in distillation skills since they have not only kept very well but also still have excellent taste relevant to the period.
Flavour A light hazel nut flavour with many complexities of nutty flavours combined with straw and grassy flavours and an array of herby and woody tones all mixed in with a lightness and freshness of the period.
