Need $200+ gift cognac recommendations

Hi all,

I'm looking to spend about $200 for a cognac lover, could go up as high as $280, but not much more. The problem is I know very little about cognac. A search of the boards pulled up some names, i.e. Delamain, Dudognon Heritage and Paul Giraud Tres Rare, but absolutely no mention of prices.

What would you recommend?

Also, are there major taste preferences in cognac that I should be aware of when selecting one? i.e With cognacs, do I run the risk of buying the equivalent of a heavy red wine for a Spumante lover?

Thanks!
