LAFITE TRÈS VIEILLE RÉSERVE COGNAC
Since its 1855 classification, Chateau Lafite Rothschild has been considered one of the best wine producers in the world. Its reputation attracts countless visitors each year, including foreign dignitaries, socialites and royalty. It is during the visits of these important guests to the chateau, that Chateau Lafite Rothschild would serve a superior batch of their very own cognac at the end of the ceremonial banquet. Only a decade ago, with frequent requests from principle negociants and prominent collectors, the chateau ultimately decided to release a limited allocation to the market.
Lafite Cognac - Très Vieille Réserve is a truly exceptional product which represents the culmination of efforts the chateau and its vinerons have undertaken and mastered for over half a century - an unsurpassed level of consistency and quality has been maintained. This exceptional blend consists of the finest grapes the Cognac region has to offer (Grand Champagne, Fine Champagne and Borderie), and with precise blending of eau de vies ranging from 40 to 100 years old.
The result, a rare and prestigious cognac.
