Situated in Cherac in the heart of the Borderies Cru, the Grateaud family has been passing on the art of Cognac-making from father to son for five generations. Borderies Cognac has a distinctly unique personality from Grande and Petite Champagne, showing plush, sweet fruit alongside jubilant aromatics of honey and wildflowers. The soils are predominantly clay, peppered with chunks of flint. The spirits of Borderies have a tendency to age a bit quicker, showing complex nutty flavors, combined with a noticeable purple flower quality. For this reason, Cognacs of Borderies are beloved amongst negociants for mixing into younger expressions of Cognac for complexity.
