Joseph Guy - VSOP

Joseph Guy - VSOP

Assemblage

Joseph Guy VSOP is aged for at least four years, resulting in a perfectly rounded flavor. The longer maturation in the barrel makes the taste more rounded by the action of oxygen and more complex because the oak fabrics add vanillin and tannin. The color is deep golden amber-like. The bouquet is formed by full timber and tones of flower. The taste is characterized by traces of oak and rancio. The finish is complex, balanced and surprisingly long.

Frapin - Chateau Fontpinot, XO

Grande Champagne

Chateau Fontpinot is located in the heart of the Cognac region: the Grande Champagne. The best quality Cognac is produced here. Grande Champagne Cognac needs to age longer to reach full development.

This is one of the reasons why this unique, highly concentrated, complex and fragrant cognac is created.
