Best VSOP Tasting Set with Cognac
Growth area & soil: Blend
This is a delightful set of three full sized bottles of VSOP quality Cognacs from three houses that might not yet be some that many Cognac lovers are that familiar with. It's a great opportunity to purchase a set that will greatly increase the variety of Cognacs you own, as well as a way to discover the delicious differences between blenders. In addition, each of the bottles is a wonderfully versatile drink that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways.
The first bottle in the set is the Frapin VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac
This blend is, as the name suggests, created solely from eaux-de-vie from the Grande Champagne terroir. Complex yet balanced, the decanter has been redesigned for 2017, and it's the ideal presentation for the beautiful amber liquor it holds within.
- Gold Medal in its category at the World Spirit Competition 2001 in San Francisco
- Gold medal at the Prodexpo Wine Fair in Moscow in 2003.
- Frapin VSOP received the acclaimed award World's Best VSOP Cognac 2016.
- Gold medal in the VSOP Single Cru category at the 2017 Cognac Masters
Next in the set is the Leyrat VSOP Reserve Cognac
This Cognac has been created from eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois terroir of the region. The soils here lend a fruity, oaky taste very different to that of those grown in Grande Champagne. As with all of Leyrat's Cognacs, it's been created with generations of knowledge and passion. A versatile Cognac to own, and can be enjoyed neat, over ice, or even as a special base for your favorite cocktail.
The set is competed by the Roullet VSOP Grande Champagne Cognac
Another delight from the Grande Champagne region of Cognac, this offers exceptional balance and a true sensory journey from the moment you set eyes on it. This continues with the sumptious aromas and the compexity of the palate. One thing that you'll notice is the subtle differences from the other Grande Champagne Cognac in the set, and provides a wonderful opportunity to contrast and compare how Cognacs from the same growing area can have subtley different tastes whilst sharing the same base of character.
