Cuvée presentation

The seventh edition in the Hors d’Age range, it is a Grande Champagne, the most prestigious cru in the appellation, made from Ugnic Blanc grapes. It is a very old cognac which, after ageing in oak casks, has been stored in wax-sealed demijohns at A.E. Dor’s Paradis cellar.

The distillery A.E. DOR

The house was founded in 1858 by a doctor named Jean-Baptiste Dor, but it was his son Amédée Edouard the estate was named after 32 years later. He set himself the task of acquiring the best cognacs in the region, a mission which earned him the nickname of the ‘cognac dealer’. Jean-Baptiste’s son-in-law directed the house from 1922 until 1972, when it was bought by Bénédictine, who appointed François Mitterand’s brother Philippe Mitterand to run the house. The new owner took little interest in the brand and sold it to Jacques Rivière in 1982. His wife Odile became the cellar master, quickly taking to the trade and developing a real talent and strong renown among her peers. Odile died in a car accident in 1992 and her husband took her place as cellar master, alongside their son Pierre-Antoine and Béatrice Coussy. The house was bought by Unicognac in 2015. Although initially a bottler, it owns a few hectares of vines in Grande and Petite Champagne, and Les Fins Bois. The cognacs are distilled at a distillery in Chateauneuf-sur-Charente.
