Courvoisier V.S. Cognac 70cl
A youthful and lively cognac which delivers a variety of tastes combined with the signature Courvoisier floral taste and aromas
Courvoisier V.S. Cognac
Initially founded in 1828 by Felix Courvoisier, Maison Courvoisier is located in Jarnac, at the heart of France’s Cognac region.
They are now considered to be one of the 'big four' cognac companies (along with Hennessy, Rémy Martin, and Martell), with Courvoisier as the youngest.
Their signature style reveals the intricacies and exuberance of the floral cognac.
Interesting Fact: Napoléon III (the nephew and heir of Napoléon Bonaparte) personally requested Courvoisier - and even awarded Maison Courvoisier the title of "Fournisseur Officiel de la Maison de l'Empereur" (official supplier of the Imperial Court) in 1869. This was one of the reasons it became known across Europe - and was enjoyed at many royal courts
Their V.S. Cognac (Very Special) is, as Courvoisier say "meticulously blended to defy category conventions. It is an authentic and joyous introduction to the Courvoisier collection". The V.S designation means that the youngest brandy in the blend has been aged for at least 2 years.
Whilst there is a blend of several cru's, Courvoisier VS Cognac is composed principally of Fins Bois along with a balancing hand of Petite Champagne.
The cognac opens with notes from the Bon Bois and Fin Bois crus, which elevate fruit notes of apple, pear and grapefruit. The signature floral notes of Courvoisier come through mid way on the palate, with delicate spring blossoms. Towards the end there is a complexity joined by a fresh oaky finish, which is brought into the cognac from the Petite Champagne cru.
"An elegant and harmonious cognac with strong notes of fresh fruit and fresh oaky taste." Patrice Pinet, Master Blender

If enjoying straight up on its own, ensure you enjoy this at room temperature from a tulip / snifter glass. However this also works exceptionally well in the mix.
