Courvoisier Initiale Extra Cognac

So the youngest Eau de Vie (spirits that are blended to create Cognac) nestled in here is 30 years old and the oldest is 50- all originating from the classic Cognac regions of Grande Champagne and Borderies. In Cognac terms these two regions are very different indeed. Grande Champagne tends to produce rich and spicy spirit whilst Borderies is renowned for lighter more floral styles. And so the result here is a superb marriage of the two styles. A fragrant nose subtly leads into what ends up being a relatively spicy/ fruit cake Cognac. Thoroughly, thoroughly recommended.

    Product Description

    Originally set up in Paris in the early 1800s to much acclaim (the then Emperor Napoleon III drank no other Cognac than Courvoisier) the business eventually moved 'down south' to Jarnac in Cognac itself in 1828. The products fame was surely at its peak when served at the opening of the iconic Eiffel Tower in 1889.
