Quick Overview

A bottle was sold at the famous Cognac Croizet auction in September 2011 for $11,100

In 1883 Phylloxera was rampant which eliminated all the vineyards in the Bordeaux region, thus greatly impoverishing wine and cognac production. However, in 1883, Leon Croizet's grandson - Benjamin Leon Croizet, replanted American vines, in place of the diseased French ones, and surrounded these by stone walls. This technique overcame the Phylloxera disease, for which Benjamin Leon Croizet was honored with the Légion d'honneur.Phylloxera disease, for which Benjamin Leon Croizet was honored with the Légion d'honneur. The Legion d'Honneur 1883 commemorates his honor
The aromatic richness of this Cuvée is crowned by intense notes of orange confit and dried apricots mixed with vanilla. The soft spice notes reveal themselves with subtlety, adding to the depth of taste. On the palate rich notes of leather marry with saffron and exotic woods, creating a lasting impression of power and elegance.
Carefully preserved by the Croizet family in the "Paradis" ageing cellar. This unique cellar room houses pre-phylloxera eaux-de-vie back to 1858. This bottle was shipped under the president of Croizet Americas supervision. We guarantee authenticity.
