The nose expresses notes of grapes and apricots, associated with a scent of plums. Here the flavors of stone fruits are legion : apricot, peach, then fresher fruits such as plum and prune.
There is also a beginning of Rancio, a guarantee of quality in a 25 years old Cognac. This Cognac Paul Giraud also expresses some spices, especially a light clove. The final is somewhat alcoholic, but without being too heavy.
The length and depth are beautiful. The result is a very airy Cognac on the palate.
