Thiscognac contains the finest eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne cru, the most exclusive in the Cognac region, that have been aged in our warehouses for over two decades in hand selected Troncais oak barrels. 21 years is the perfect time for these specific eaux-de-vie to develop their full richness and heightened aromatic style.
On the nose, the first notes are dried hazelnut, dried apricots and figs, followed slowly by notes of cocoa, honey and smooth spices like white pepper and coriander. The finish brings subtle notes of leather and fine cigar.
On the palate, the aromatic notes deepen into candied orange and gingerbread, leading to a smooth and voluptuous finish with exquisite depth that seems to go on forever.
A stunning recent release from Courvoisier, this marks the first time Cognac from a top house has been released with an age statement! This was made using eaux de vie from the premier Grande Champagne region. Very fruity and incredibly rich!
