This skillfully crafted V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale) cognac is a blend of several crus with a perfect balance between Fins Bois, Grande and Petite Champagnes at the peak of their aromatic potential.
A delicate bouquet and excellent balance of oak and exotic flavours.
Grande and Petite Champagnes bring harmony while Fins Bois give a floral and fruity character.
When the cognac is distilled and aged, it begins to conjure the soft, luscious aroma of ripe peach. After several years in our French fine-grained oak barrels, the spirit develops nutty notes and ages to produce a sweet, caramelized flavor resembling that of toasted almonds. The distillation on the lees is a complex and meticulous process but it gives fruity and musk notes, evoking jasmine aroma.
In the early 1800's, Louis Gallois and Emmanuel Courvoisier founded their cognac business in Paris. Courvoisier became Emperor Napoleon III's official cognac. Legend has it that he chose several casks of cognac as his one granted item of luxury when he was exiled to the remote island of St Helena. Courvoisier is the only cognac that has been awarded with the highest quality award - Prestige de la France.
In 1828 they relocated to Jarnac in the cognac region to oversee the quality of their production, and this is where Courvoisier cognac is produced to this day.
