These two bottles of Vieux Cognac from the house of J.V. Caillette lay in the cool damp cellars of the Parisian restaurant La Tour d’Argent for over 100 years until finally being removed and sold by Christies London in 2012. As one would expect many of the bottles removed were bin-soiled, dirty and in many cases with only the remains of labels. However, they have proved to become some of the finest ancient liqueurs ever tasted by mankind.
Both feature faded but intact labels clearly showing the producer and vintage. Wax capsules are fragile but remain affixed.
