Unique Eighteenth century cognac. The family house of Leopold Brugerolle was supplying the Paris restaurant market in the 1850s with bottles of mature cognac ourchased from their contracted growers, and marked with the vintage as an indication of their age. Much of the cognac from this period was requestioned by the French revolutionary army officers. This hand-blown bottle, believed to be between 5 and 6 litres in size, is of excellent general appearance. Heavy wax capsule. Original labels (first started being used in the 1850s) bin-soiled but good for age. Deep colour, 9,5 cms, below base of cork. This bottle was part of the Lloyd Flatt collection sold by Christie's in Chicago in 1990.
