Vintage 1988 Fins Bois Cognac Bache Gabrielsen
Limited Edition !
In 1988, the month of August of that year was extremely painful for the cognac vineyards, as well as for modern art lovers and car addicts. Because Jean-Michel Basquiat and Enzo Ferrari died that month and it only rained 7.8 mm in the Cognac region.
Difficult conditions but promising for a quality vintage from the Fins Bois terroir, as the vines dug deep into the soil to find the nutrients and minerals needed to get through this dry period. Our Cellar Master has been carefully storing it in demijohns since 2013.
