Details

A vintage version of the VSOP but with more than 30 years maturing providing an enhanced richness and depth. This is a delicious cognac with beautiful soft tones and aromas.

Additional Information

Aroma Dried apricot and peaches, although less pronounced than younger cognacs
Distillation Recenty installed some new big stills. Their style is fruity and distillation is probably around 68 -70 degrees. This is a well managed and good distillery
Flavour Some nutty flavours. The dried peach comes out with vanilla and sandalwood. This is much more complex than others and has some delightful qualities.
Grape Variety 80% Ugni Blanc also Colombard and Folle Blanche
Reduction and Strength Eau de vie mixed with distilled water, only small quantities used as cellars are quite dry.
Viticulture The ground here is flat. The chalk here is probably Santonian being more compacted than that of the Cognacian further to the north. Grape varieties are mainly ugni blanc but the firm also has a reasonable level of Colombard and Folle which they put to good use in the cognacs.
