Gourry De Chadeville 1Er Cru Du Cognac Overproof
For over 15 generations Gourry De Chadeville and his family have been dedicated to the production of traditional cognac made entirely by manual means. The small family estate in segonzac was officially founded in 1619 and still stands today as the oldest estate in the region.
This special overproof three years old was created with cocktails in mind but with zero additives, caramel, or Boise, etc. Notes include vine flowers, honeysuckle, freshly churned butter, pure vanilla, peach nectar, and a hint of coconut.
PM Spirits markets itself as a “Provider of Geeky Spirits.” Founder Nicolas Palazzi was raised amongst his family’s vineyards if Bordeaux, France, and learned the ins and outs of artisanal Cognac under the tutelage of a man known only as “Mr. X.” After his successful start in Cognac, Nicolas has turned his attention to the “geeky” production of a wide range of strictly limited Rums, Brandies, Whiskies, Armagnacs, Calvados, Liqueurs, Eau de Vie, and a bunch specialty bitters and Vermouths.
Founded in 1619, Gourry de Chadeville is the oldest Cognac House in the region located in Segonzac, the capital of the Grande Champagne appellation. Bottled at cask strength, Gourry de Chadeville Overproof is produced exclusively for PM Spirits from 100% Ugni Blanc grapes.
The wine is double distilled on the lees in a very small 25 hectoliter copper pot-still. It ages for a total of three years thirty months in seasoned Limousin oak and six months in foudre. Last we checked, only 330 bottles made it into the United States last year.
How Uncle Flaviar got his hands on it nobody knows. But if you are a Cognac fan, this highly-rated gem needs to be in your liquor cabinet.
