Distilled in the fall of 1946 in the village of Bilhouet by artisan Hubert Portier, using grapes grown in his family’s vineyard. The first harvest following World War II was superb, the best in memory. Portier’s ancestral still—located in a rustic building behind the vineyard—was a wood-fired antique. He produced sixteen barrels of a wonderful cognac, using methods passed from father to son for generations....

Fifty-one years later, Surrenne rediscovered the 1946 while cataloguing their inventory Portier’s cognac, originally intended to become part of a blend, had remained a separate lot. Its aromas and flavors are simply superb. Surrenne has bottled the lot unblended, with no additives, just as it came from the tun, in tribute to its distiller, who quietly produced one of the finest cognacs ever made. The rich fruit is astonishingly generous for a 52-year-old bottling. Bottled in 1998, this cognac received a 96 score from Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

Technical notes
Distilled on a wood-fired still by Hubert Portier, from grapes grown in his family vineyard. The first vintage following WWII, 1946 was also one of Cognac's great vintages. Unlike other cognacs, this has never been blended and was bottled directly from the barrel.

Producer
At Maison Surrenne, we seek out beautifully-crafted cognacs which reveal the special qualities of each region, each vintage, each distillery, and, for the single-distillery Galtaud, each individual cask. We put bottling-specific information on the label and provide extensive, accurate product information in the literature. You the purchaser, deserve superb product and accessible, accurate, information about that product. While the cognacs we select for the Maison Surrenne label are genuinely extraordinary in quality, they are very favorably priced.
