Cognac 1840 Robert Dupuy (5960)

The Dupuy brand was founded in 1852 by the Frenchman Auguste Dupuy. After several years of growth and producing the finest cognac, Auguste passed the company to his nephew Edmond. Later on the house was acquired by two Norwegians - among them Thomas Bache-Gabrielsen - who renamed the company to THS Bache-Gabrielsen, while preserving the Dupuy brand. Today the company is still 100% independent family owned and is managed by Hervé Bache-Gabrielsen, Thomas’s grandson and representing the fourth generation.

Cognac

Renowned throughout the world, the production of Cognac has been regulated by its very own AOC since 1909. Only liqueurs from eaux-de-vie made from crus from the controlled appellation area of Cognac can be labelled as such. This liqueur must be distilled and aged on-site in compliance with authorised techniques: double distillation in a copper Charentais still, ageing in oak barrels for a set minimum ageing period.

A good Cognac is subjected to a complex manufacturing process. It is never made from the eau-de-vie of a single cru, but from a `marriage' of eaux-de-vie that vary in age and cru - some as old as a hundred. To establish the age of a Cognac, only the number of years spent in oak casks or barrels are taken into account. As soon as an eau-de-vie is decanted into a glass recipient, it ceases to age. The longer it is left to age, the more a Cognac gains in complexity, fragrance, aromas and taste (spiced, pepper and cinnamon flavours).

Please note that only Cognacs made exclusively from Petite and Grande Champagne (50% minimum) can use the "Fine Champagne" appellation.
