Blended from eaux de vie from the four leading terroirs of the Cognac-growing region, Gautier Cognac VSOP is rich and balanced. These eaux de vie have been aged from four to six years in Limousin oak barrels to build complexity and finish. This cognac's attractive amber color and delicate nose of dried fruit and vanilla invite you to sip it neat or, alternatively, mix it with soda, allowing the full flavors of oak, apple and light citrus mixed with vanilla to please your palate. Gautier Cognac VSOP goes particularly well with dark chocolate. Located in Aigre on the Osme River, maker Gautier Cognac traces its history back to the 17th century and is now owned by the Belvedere Group.
