1961 is widely regarded as one of the most exceptional Champagne vintages of the 20th century.
In the remote village of Échebrune, nestled within the rolling hills of southwestern France, the Herbelot family of winegrowers harvested the grapes that would become this rare and exquisite cognac. Rather than sell this harvest to an established cognac house as was customary, the Herbelots reserved these coveted grapes to be distilled by their family and barreled to age for 60 years.
