Bache-Gabrielsen Cognacs

BACHE-GABRIELSON COGNAC


The cognac house of Bache-Gabrielsen was founded by Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen from Holmestrand in 1905.  Several generations later the business is still owned and run by the Bache-Gabrielsen family.  It is now being run by Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen’s great-grandson Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen, who recently took over the day-to-day management from his father, Christian Bache-Gabrielsen.

Hors d’Age Grande Champagne $199.99

A pure Grande Champagne.  The oldest elements in the blend are from around 1917, while the youngest are from the 1960s.  Made mainly from the traditional Ugni Blanc grape and 10% Folle Blanche.  Dark golden colour.  A rich, generous bouquet.  Excellent balance between fruit, flowers and spice notes from the wood.  Powerful attack, almost oily in consistency, a distinctive and unmistakable stamp of Grande Champagne with the famous long finish.  It takes more than 50 years, but it is worth waiting for.
