Pale gold in colour this cognac has fresh, subtle aromas of white peach and pear. On the palate it is clean and intense with a refreshing, long lasting finish.
Léopold Gourmel was Olivier‘s grand-father, a famous viticulteur and horse saddler (hence the horse‘s head, which features on all the Cognac bottles). Olivier‘s aim was to make ‘intelligent‘ Cognacs that remained faithful to nature, by avoiding the usual standardization and blending of Cognacs (instead he makes his Cognacs from a single vintage), and rejecting the legal use of additives. His Cognacs are classed according to the length of time they age, with 10, 15 and 20 Carats reflecting the minimum of 10, 15 or 20 years that the Cognacs have aged. Uniquely, he also classes his Cognacs according to the dominant aromas they age: Fruit, Floral or Spice aromas.
