Courvoisier Exclusif is designed to be mixed, it is smooth and delicate with a distinctive, mellow taste. It is crafted from a blend of cognacs, aged up to 12 years. It holds its own unique character in the company of ice an mixers. Brilliant copper color. Rich aromas of chocolate, nuts, and brown spice. A round supple entry leads to a smooth dry medium-bodied palate with brown spices, mineral, toffee, and pepper flavors. Finishes dryly with minerals, wood spice, and light dried fruit notes. A refined, nicely dry, woody VSOP.
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.
The diverse aromas and flavors present in Exclusif lend it a versatility unheard of in cognac, providing endless inspiration for sophisticated cocktails, as it pairs perfectly with aromatic mixers and fresh purees. Learn to mix a Courvoisier Exclusif Sidecar.
