This was a gorgeous and rounded style of VSOP Cognac that impressed us with our 'Bourbon' palate. The nose shows caramel corn, funnel cakes and light spice with a banana foster, Werther's orange cream. The palate has a roundness with a light spice kiss of oak with prunes in syrup. D&M Tasting Notes
Johan Archambaud says that to make great Cognac, you need to have a grandfather who made great Cognac. Johan had 2 Grandfather's who made great cognac, plus a few Great Grandfathers and Great-Great Grandfathers as well. They have a document from 1791 granting the family official permission to distill - so the roots fun deep. The family now owns and farms 36 HA in Grande Champagne on various terroirs (Lignieres-Sonneville, Saint Preuil, Criteuil-La- Magdeleine and Ambleville) and 32 HA in Petite Champagne in the Arthenac region - a zone known for superior quality in Petite Champagne. Farming is Lutte Raisonee with a focus on biodiversity and sustainability.
