Eschenauer was one of the most controversial firms in the industry. The firm was based in Bordeaux where its Jewish owners specialised in selling wines from the region, including some which were labelled under their own name. They also were known for collecting cognacs dating from the 19th century, again labelling them under their own name. Many of the cognacs came from the best producing areas and were of quite high quality. The firm came to grief during the last war when the locals accused them of collaborating with the Germans and refused to deal with them.
|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.|
