Producer’s Notes:
 
As well as the 1980 and the 1971, we bought this batch, made up of several barrels of the same origin, from a Parisian widow whose husband, who had a very successful career as a magistrate, invested in cognac for tax reasons. It was upon his death that the widow learned that she was the owner of several barrels of cognac which had been stored under state control since they were filled. This batch was aged for almost four decades in a very old O.R.E.C.O warehouse located in the Fins Bois region. The ageing started in new casks until today and the casks were probably never changed. The harvest 1970 was excellent in terms of volume and therefore it was described as the first “modern harvest” obtained in Cognac with an important quantity and a good “quality” according to the precepts of the “modern” wine growing.
