Best Wine of The world Cognac

Best Wine of The world Cognac

There is a great variety of wines in the world. But one of the most prestigious and most complex is the Cognac.
Cognac is a type of wine often confused with Armagnac, produced from white grape varieties, mainly Ugni Blanc, which gives wines with a high acidity level and a low level of alcohol.
Since 1909, six areas define the appellations in Charente, France. They are Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois and Bois Ordinaires.
How is produced Cognac? The wine is distilled following a traditional way named “à repasse“ in a copper alembic.
The eau de vie obtained will spend many years in oak to gain his colour and flavours. Sometimes, it can age during many decades and benefits the work of oak ageing. The transfer between Cognac and oak will give a colour yellow to amber and brown and develop the bouquet of Cognac.
After decades in oak ageing, the Cognac reveals all the flavours from wood and thanks to the ventilation he loses its alcoholic strength but also a volume part. This evaporation is named la “Part des Anges”.

Intense nose of fine wood, dry spices, marzipan, almond paste and tobacco. The palate combines spicy and dried fruit. Warm and ripe on the finish, long with a nutty aftertaste.

Complex and mature nose with fine wood, rather sweet fruit like fig, dates and prune sprinkled with clove, dried ginger and vanilla. The palate shows more dryness and bite than the nose, flavour intense and a long, intense finish.

Sweet aromas of dried fruit, pastry, glazed, nuts, honey and toasted wood emerge. The palate has a very good bite and freshness with fine harmony. Very long finish with a soft texture, balanced alcohol and great persistency, very nice.
