Expert Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
A distinguished selection from the storied terroirs of Cognac, France, Couvignac Cognac VS is an eloquent expression of the unique characteristics that have made Cognac an iconic and revered spirit. With its "Very Special" age statement, this cognac has been aged for a minimum of two years in French oak barrels, providing a gateway to the complexities and nuances of more mature cognacs.
On the nose, Couvignac Cognac VS offers an invigorating blend of fresh orchard fruits—chiefly apple and apricot—complemented by hints of floral notes like jasmine and honeysuckle. A subtle layer of vanilla emerges, foreshadowing the oak aging process.
The palate is a symphony of interwoven flavors, where the youthful exuberance of the spirit manifests in its crisp fruitiness, showcasing green grapes and stone fruits. This is balanced by the soft, creamy undertones of caramel and butterscotch, imparted by the oak aging. The texture is silky, allowing for the flavor components to be fully savored.
The finish is delightfully smooth and enduring, with traces of sweet spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon gradually dissolving into a lasting warmth that encourages contemplative sipping.
This Cognac is not merely a digestif. Its balanced flavor profile makes it an excellent companion to a variety of foods, from rich, creamy cheeses to light desserts like fruit tarts.
