Here comes a rather heartwarming story (and furthermore a really beautiful bottle). One of our readers has this Hine Vieille Grande Champagne Cognac at home in Mexico City, Mexico.

My incredible father, who loved to enjoy life and everything he did (MD, Photographer, anthropologist, bon vivant, traveler, scuba diver, cook, avid reader, and a gentleman) received this bottle as a gift circa 1960. He kept it in the original case because he wanted it to be enjoyed on my wedding. He died in 1995… I never married… It has been with me and I want someone to enjoy it as he would.”
