Details

A family run estate in Jarnac Champagne. The vines are a mixture of Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard and their distillation style creates very fruity flavours. This VSOP has a dried apricot quality.

Additional Information

Aroma A dominance of dried apricot and peaches.
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 quite distinctly with vanilla and toffee
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.
