This is 100% Borderies from Galtaud, a facility founded in 1800 in the commune of Mainx. The tiny Borderies district (home of the Surrenne Distillerie Galtauld) contains clay soils deposited in ancient times by the Charente river. These heavier soils impart substance to distillates. Borderies cognacs are typically used to give body to more delicate blends. Many plantings have a southern exposure, so that the best Borderies grapes are known for their rich fruitiness. Cognacs from the Borderies do not require extensive aging but good ones respond well to extended time in oak.
