From the single-still Galtaud distillery, founded in 1800 in the village of Mainxe. The single-vintage Galtaud has unusually rich fruit with the region’s typical attributes: profound volume with hints of violets and nut kernels. Bottled August 3, 2001. The tiny borderies district contains soils deposited in ancient times by the Charente river. These heavier soils impart substance, and borderies cognacs are typically used to give body to more delicate blends. Many plantings have a southern exposure, so that the best borderies grapes are known for their rich fruitiness. Borderies cognacs do not require extensive aging.
A rich, unblended single-cask Cognac from the Borderies clay soils. Aged 19 years in barrel. Distinctive and full-bodied, from a tiny and often overlooked Cognac region of Borderies. Excellent length with flavors of nut kernels and the distinctive hint of violets in the nose.
