Bache-Gabrielsen

The house of Cognac Bache-Gabrielsen dates back to 1905. It was founded by Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen, a young Norwegian born in Holmestrand in 1883 to parents Kamilla Bache and Alexander Gabrielsen, merchants specializing in the sale of spirits.

Getting out of military school at the age of 20, Thomas is sent by his father to Cognac to develop the family business. The young adventurer quickly fell in love, with Cognac of course, but also with Odette Villard, a young Charentais woman who was the daughter of winegrowers; he then decided to settle in the region. The experience that was supposed to last a few months ended up lasting a lifetime.

Thomas and his Norwegian friend Peter Anton Rustad then jointly bought the Maison de Cognac A. Edmond Dupuy and renamed it Bache-Gabrielsen. Soon, thanks to their Scandinavian connections, their Cognac export business was doing well with Norway (the brand is now the leader in this market) and Denmark, then in continuity with the United States.

Through a long family history, successive generations would adapt, modernize and perpetuate the foundations of this House. Today, Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen, the fourth generation to head the company, is well aware that the world of Cognac is changing, with a strongly developed international market, a younger clientele, different consumption patterns and ever-changing marketing strategies.

Description Bache-Gabrielsen 1999.

Notably due to climatic conditions, in 1999 the production of Cognac was one of the smallest of the 20th century, and therefore one of the most Rares. These circumstances, coupled with 23 years of aging in Limousin oak barrels, make this Cognac from Maison Bache-Gabrielsen a real nugget.

Issued from grapes sourced exclusively from the prestigious Grande Champagne, Premier Cru de Cognac terroir, this single-cask (from a single cask) is a limited edition, unfined and unfiltered, 46.9° alcohol.

La robe boasts a beautiful amber color with orange highlights. The nose is very intense and powerful, evoking a ship returning to port with its belly full of Indian spices, cardamom and cloves. A small, granular note of cocoa powder gives it depth. Some subtle, empyreumatic touches of smoke, very roasted coffee and blond tobacco complete the ensemble.

On the palate, the texture is round and soft. The eXOtism returns with chocolate and gingerbread aromas predominating, and a lovely coffee note. In the background, a fruity flavor of ripe mango and citrus peel is delicately expressed. The finish is exquisitely indulgent, long and spicy, with its hint of anise, clove and cocoa.
