With hints of vanilla and oak this cognac is one of my many favorites. This is also one of the few VS cognacs that is aged more than 3 years which gives it a great maturity.
Cognac is a living, breathing product. Over the years, the eaux-de-vie is in permanent contact with the oak casks, a natural interaction that gives our cognac its rich colour and complex bouquet. To be legally called cognac, eaux-de-vie must be aged for at least two and half years. Every additional years adds richness and smoother flavours, so even our youngest cognac, Courvoisier VS, uses eaux-de-vie that has been aged for up to eight years.
After being pressed, our Ugni Blanc grape juice naturally ferments for seven days, the fruit sugars transforming it into a sumptuous wine ready for distillation. The clear wine is fruity, dry, slighltly acidic and about 9% by volume. We insist on Micro distilling, where our wine growers ferment their wine in small batches before we select only the very best to go forward for distillation.
Enjoy VS net to fully appreciate its complex aromas. Our VS also pairs perfectly with soda, tonic or cola as the carbonation accelerates the release of the heady aromas. Learn to mix a Courvoisier VS and Ginger Coctail.
