Only a few bonbonnes exist of this old, Hermitage Paradis 1875 Cognac which originally came from a cellar near Bouteville.  It was distilled on a very small still and then aged for more than 75 years in a cellar built against a limestone cutting.  The cellar floor and walls were natural, with no cement or conrete, which made it ideal for ageing old cognacs.

Additional Information

Chocolate, vanilla pod and burnt toffee
Aged for more than 75 years in an oak cask in a cellar with natural walls and floor
Distillation was on a small 3 hectolitre still, which was fired with wood and coal blocks; wood would have been used for the early distillations. Around this period in history the distiller would sleep in the distillery to ensure the ‘eau de vie’ did not burn.
Cocoa, burnt walnuts, liquorice, vanilla, toffee and dry citrus peel with an intense and rich rancio
Grape Variety:
Folle Blanche, the most common cognac grape before the Phylloxera outbreak.
Reduction & Strength:
This cognac is completely natural, there has been no reduction.
Although there are several relatively flat areas in Grande Champagne most of the cru is covered with rolling hills probably not exceeding 150 metres. The soil comprises Cognacian and Santonian chalk, ideal for the vine roots which can penetrate as much as 30 metres into the underground streams which run through the fissures in the chalk.
