does this bottle come in a box? or is it just a free bottle..
One of a kind Cognac that has a rich color with a little oaky taste. It's quite nice to enjoy this on a special evening.
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.
To fully appreciate the subtle nuances of Courvoisier Initiale Extra Cognac, it is best to enjoy it neat. Our Master Blender recommends allowing the cognac to breathe, untouched, for one minute after it has been poured.
