  1. Do you have the box and packaging for the bottle and will you ship to US?

  2. I can offer you $2,500 and local pick-up in France.

  3. I’m not a very knowledgeable Cognac collector but this bottle is amazing to me! Bottled in 1840, are you kidding me?!?! I can only wonder how magnificent the experience would be…

    Enjoy my friends!

  4. This is not bottled in 1840. It is harvested in 1840, probably aged in casks for 80 years+ then transferred to a Dame Jeanne (Large glass bottle) and stored in a cellar until bottled. Judging from the bottle type and condition it was probably bottled in the last 15-20 years.

    Consider that when you buy a Louis XIII or a Richard Hennessy cognac you are also dealing with a large proportion of very old cognacs, some well over 100 years old but because they are blended there is no date on the bottles.

    This bottle is claimed to be ALL 1840 grapes, 100% pre-phyloxera era which is indeed rare. You have to trust that AE Dor kept proper records of their cellars so that is what you are indeed getting. The bottle is very recent and no proof of age in itself.

  5. Hi,
