Cognac Masters 2015 - Gold Award

Produced on a small estate in the Grande Champagne and aged for over 20 years, this deep, golden cognac has a wonderful aroma of toffee with roasted nut, some spices and just a hint of pineapple.

Additional Information

Aroma This deep, golden cognac has a wonderful aroma of toffee with roasted nut, some spices and just a hint of pineapple.
Ageing This cognac has been aged in Limoursin barrels for over 20 years in fairly damp cellars. This helps to keep the barrels damp and the spirit in contact with the natural tannins in the oak for longer.
Distillation This cognac is double distilled on a small Charentais Alembic still which helps to concentrate the wine flavours during distillation.
Flavour Fine cognacs become more complex as they mature. There are flavours of spice and coffee with pineapple in the background.
Grape Variety Ugni Blanc and some Folle Blanche
Reduction and Strength Cognacs from the Grande Champagne age very slowly and can take more than 50 years to fully mature. Some gradual reduction has taken place to ensure this cognac is sold at its best strength
Viticulture The land here is flatter than around the town of Segonzac but the soil is chalky and porous, ideal for growing cognac vines as the roots can penetrate deep into the ground looking for water.
