Aged for 40 years, this “very rare” cognac is made with ugni blanc, folle blanche, and colombard grapes harvested from their vineyards in the Bouteville & St. Même-Les-Carrières communes. Giraud's cognacs stand apart in that they only produce pure vintage cognacs, never blending from different years.

Tasting Notes

"Cedar in color, Très Rare has a spicy nose filled with hints of nutmeg and pure vanilla which carry over onto the palate. Slight cinnamon tones and delicate oak notes characterize the taste and make for a pleasant and long-lasting finish."
