Dame Jeanne 3,30 Litres : “Tradition” by Cognac ABK6

This unique “Dame-Jeanne” in blown glass was produced by the famous Verrerie Biot and contains a precious and very old Cognac, both rich and complex, to be served with the traditional glass “pipette”. From very early on, the most exquisite Cognacs have been stored in the traditional glass recipients “Dame-Jeanne” upon reaching maturity. These famous largecapacity bottles with curves protected the eaux‑de‑vie from the air and from light, in order to preserve all of their qualities. We wanted to honour this ancestral tradition by putting this Cognac ABK6 in an authentic 3,3-litre “Dame Jeanne”, from the famous Verrerie de Biot. Tradition by ABK6 is a rich, supple and generous Cognac with vast aromatic complexity. Aromas of cedar, candied fruit and honey intermingle, producing a long-lasting taste and incomparable dimension and richness. To serve Cognac ABK6, this “Dame Jeanne” comes with an old glass pipette, used daily by the cellar master.

Anniversary set of two Porcelaine decanters: Cognac Leyrat

To celebrate the plantation of the vineyards at the top of the hill on the Domaine LEYRAT 40 years ago, a collector’s edition was created, with two antique Limoges porcelain decanters: LEYRAT XO and EXTRA. In 1973, the vineyards “Combe de Cormier” were planted on the Domaine de Chez Maillard. Forty years later, we are still benefiting from the vines planted at that time. We therefore take this opportunity of the 40th anniversary to remember that anything outstanding which is allowed to mature become magnificent. This luxury wooden box containing two authentic Limoges Porcelaine decanters, reminds the authenticity of French savoir-faire. LEYRAT XO unveils spicy notes in perfect balance with rancio. Cinnamon, gingerbread and liquorice elegantly enhance this very old Cognac. LEYRAT EXTRA offers aromatic richness, finesse and exceptional elegance. Aromas of rancio, woody spices such as cinnamon, ginger and cigar box, followed by ripened fruits develop during tasting. N° 1 (of limited edition of 12)
