Paul Giraud

This very old family of winegrowers traces its origins back to around 1650. Since then, generation after generation, each Giraud has carried out the same gestures for nearly four centuries, accumulating a priceless heritage and knowledge.

Their vineyards, totaling around 35 hectares, are both located on the Grande Champagne terroir classified Premier Cru in the Cognac Region, a classification at the very top of the qualitative hierarchy of Cognacs produced in the heart of the delimited production area.

The family's vineyards are located in the shadow of the Château of Montmorency-Bouteville, a famous French family close to the Crown of France, in Bouteville and Saint-Même, two villages renowned for the quality of their limestone soils.

The grapes are harvested by hand. Their Cognacs, some of which are 50 years old, are aged in Limousin oak barrels in very humid cellars, an optimal aging criterion sought after by the very professional Cognacs.

Description Paul Giraud Héritage.

The entire vineyard Paul Giraud, or 42 ha, is located in Bouteville, in the heart of the Grande Champagne. The Giraud family relies on ancestral know-how (ploughing the soil, organic fertilizers, integrated pest management, manual harvesting for 2/3 of the vineyard, distillation in small 14hl and 18hl stills, particularly humid cellars, ...) to produce exceptional Cognacs, mono-cru and mono-année, of great finesse and aromatic intensity.

Héritage is the oldest Cognac produced by Domaine. This very old eau de vie has aged in Limousin oak barrels for a minimum of 60 years. It has an old gold and amber color with copper highlights. The nose is characteristic of Très vieux Cognacs, with an intense aroma of rancio, clove, sandalwood, red pepper and vanilla. The palate is rich and complex, with initial flavors of walnut, tiramisu, coffee and speculoos. The rancio soon returns, accompanied by notes of plum liqueur, leather cream and precious woods. The finish is soft, fresh and savory, on blond tobacco, blackberry marmalade and orange blossom.

This Cognac Héritage is a fleshy, voluptuous and elegant eau de vie. A pâté en croûte of duck, figs and foie gras will enhance its rancio and delicacy. And for cheese lovers, try a surprising pairing with Roquefort or Fourme d'Ambert... a real treat!
