"It was in 1830 that my great great grand father started producing high quality cognac in small batches. Today following in the footsteps of my ancestors, I still cultivate the vines and distill the white wine with the same passion my ancestors did. Out of 60 acres of vineyard we have in the Fins Bois and the Borderies appellations, we produce no more than 4000 cases a year. We offer our customers rare quality cognacs by controlling the grape maturity, the vinification process, the distillation and the aging process." Francois Giboin - Cellar Master
The white wine for this Giboin VSOP Réserve de l'Hermitage was distilled with its lies to offer a richer and more complex cognac.
Giboin assembled 6, 7 and 8 years old cognacs in small casks and aged them 2 more years before bottling.
It developed a rich and delicate taste of vanilla and creme brulee with a light "rancio" typical of the Borderies.
