Review by Leopold Gourmel, the producer: "This Quintessence cognac with eaux-de-vie from the 19th century, is slightly floral, great spices and fruit marriage"
Leopold Gourmel Quintessence 30 Carats is the top high end cognac by the house of Gourmel: This precious cognac comes in a unique decanter. The eaux-de-vie comes from the Fins Bois Cru, based on Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche distilled wine. This cognac has been aged for at least 25 years, and then again aged for 10 years in younger oak barrels - this finalizing process gives the cognac its absolute taste. The barrels are not toasted, no cool filters are used while production.
