Paul-Marie et Fils "Devant La Porte" 58 Year Cask Strength Single Barrel Cognac 750ml

SKU #1061885

*****END OF AN ERA - THESE ARE THE LAST 3 BOTTLES OF DLP WE WILL EVER ACQUIRE. Buy now or forever hold your peace***** In 1951, a 20 year old Frenchman named Jean began his military service outside of Lyon. He made a very good friend during this time named Pierre, who was a 9th generation Cognac producer and their friendship lasted over the years. When Jean's grandson Nicolas became interested in distilling, Pierre decided to mentor him and teach him the art of Cognac. In 2008, Nicolas, who had always been a big fan of bourbon, decided to consult with Pierre about releasing one of these barrels in a single barrel, cask strength format much like the American whiskey makers have been doing. He knew that there were collectors out there who would love to get their hands on something like that and he felt a duty to release these brandies to the world. The first of these releases is a 58-year-old barrel distilled entirely in 1951 that is one of the most awesome spirits I have tasted. Exploding with flavor, this is big, powerful, chewy, dark caramel, chocolate, dried figs and a monster mouth of 51%. It is jaw-dropping, heartstopping, simply fantastic brandy and it will appeal to more than just the Cognac lovers. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits buyer)

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
