“This little baby should have been distilled in 1934 and was almost 80 years old at the time of bottling. Nose, it’s simply a miracle in a bottle! Mouth, terrific!! Finish, surprisingly long…”

– Awarded 93/100 Points by WhiskyFun’s Serge Valentin,

This extraordinarily mature Cognac was distilled in 1934 (great vintage for wine!) & bottled at more than 80 years of age.

The hugely complex nose offers aromas of leather, saffron, walnuts and Madeira, with berry fruits and menthol on the palate. An exceptional Cognac.

Limited Bottling of 360 Bottles Only!

Tasting Notes:
  • Colour: Amber
  • Aroma: Very Fresh & fruity, delicately herbal, fab flora notes, superb tropical fruits, magnificent soft spices.
  • Palate: Big notes of oranges and pink grapefruits, guavas, then menthol, pinesap and aniseed, a faint feeling of absinth & first quality earl grey tea.
  • Finish: Surprisingly long at just 42% vol at cask strength. Oranges and cinnamon, a little extra-dry manzanilla or Madeira, tiny touches of mustard in the aftertaste.
Description

VALLEIN TERCINIER 80 Years Old Grand Rue 34 Single Cask Rare Cognac

This Cognac does everything that everything a good Grande Champagne Cognac should do; it is long in the mouth, and complex with a sleek rancio. Naturally reduced, it is light filtered at an ambient temperature after having been matured in oak casks for many years.

Bottled at a mere 360 bottles, it is a rare treasure from this Premier Cru. Descending from one single barrel, it falls into the Vintage age category. The secret to Grande Champagne Cognacs of this quality is all down to the geological makeup of this small cru. With a high chalk content, the soil is porous and makes for fine, acidic eaux-de-vie. The result, is an elegant Cognac such as the Rue 34.

The house of Vallein Tercinier is based at the Domaine des Forges, from where they have been operating since the 18th century. Once Georges Vallein began producing his own Cognacs and starting his own collection of precious eaux-de-vie, he passed his expertise down through five generations, to create the small but impressive Cognac house that exists today.

Presented in the classic bottle favored by Vallein Tercinier, it arrives with a wax seal on the side of the bottle. The wooden box engraved with the address of the family estate gives it a familiar feel.
