Domaine des Forges was bought by Louis Vallein in 1791. At the time, this estate covered much of the village of Chermignac, near Cognac. The estate was handed down to his grandson Georges who, as distiller and wine and spirits shipper, founded a trading firm circa 1850. The business continued through Georges’ descendants, with son Paul and grandson Louis Tercinier taking over after World War I. The Cognac Vallein-Tercinier company is still a family run business having been handed down from father to son for 5 generations. The bottle and label are in good condition and the bottle is thought to contain 90cl.
|Flavour||Whilst our knowledge of these old cognacs is sufficient in many cases to make an educated assessment of their flavour, we are unable to taste many of these old brandies to be certain of their qualities.|
