Brandy and Cognac - Page 4

post #46 of 58

I would only think of this as of a collectible item... there is absolutely no guarantee that such cognac could be good at all.

If capsule is undamaged it is as good as it gets. I think your statement is more true when it comes to old and very old wines., imho.

From what I understand, brandies can be aged up to 60 years in oak, then they can be kept for an incredible length of time in glass without change. My comment points to the sort of insanity needed to drink a 150 yr old bottle, not the quality of it.

My understanding is also that many of the old cognac houses have cognac libraries that date back hundreds of years, kept in glass. They referred to by the people who mix cognac in order to perfect a blend they are creating.

Ok, I finally opened my Tesseron 76 long after the 53 and 29. It's very good.

I was looking for some cognac today and I found this on clearance. I'm not a brandy expert, but it's quite nice.

Nope, I don't know enough about Armagnacs, but I have tried Audry for the 1st time at La Grand Vefour in Paris and was hooked.

Awesome! My understanding is that '53 is a great vintage, but I haven't tried it. The armagnacs I've tried triple in price from '63 to '53.
