PIERRE DE SEGONZAC Cognac VSOP Grand Champagne
Brilliant copper colour. Sweet perfumed nose of honey and fruit. A smooth entry leads to a round, off-dry medium-bodied palate with toffee and baked fruit flavours. Finished with a long, smooth brown spice and crème brulée fade. A delicious, fruit-driven artisanal style that displays a long finish.
This VSOP stayed on average 7 years in the wine storehouses of Segonzac. It waited quietly letting the air and the wood do their work. Gradually it developed it's beautiful golden yellow colour. Take time to let your glass get some fresh air a few minutes before savouring it.
On the nose the alcohol is discreet and gives way to light notes of apricot, and passion fruit. Older than a classic VSOP, in mouth, it keeps its vigour and the volume, aromas of vanilla, honey and wood. A very pleasant softness with notes of cinnamon and spices.

Cognac is a type of brandy, (a.k.a. eau-de-vie), made by double distilling white wine grapes. The brandy must be from one of the designated growing areas (crus) to be called Cognac. Once distillation is complete, it must be aged in Limousin oak casks for at least two years before it can be sold to the public. The grape used in the making of the Pierre de Segonzac Grand Champagne Cognac is 100% Ugni Blanc, exclusively from the family property located in Segonzac. They utilise sustainable farming techniques in the vineyard andhave two traditional copper stills to obtain their eau-de-vie.
V.S.O.P stands for 'very superior old pale' and designates a blend in which the youngest brandy is stored for at least 4 years.
