''This bottle will be delivered without the presentation box.''

Eye: Light, yellowish gold.

Nose: Floral and delicate, with subtle notes of jasmine and even ripe banana. The bouquet is gentle, oscillating between floral, fruity, and seductive notes. 

Palate: A soft and silky attack on the palate, which develops into notes of sweet pear that last for a number of minutes after tasting. It is a pure, pleasant selection of notes.

Description

Vaudon Fine Rare Fins Bois Cognac: The Unfiltered Fins Bois Phenomenon 

Could this producer be the master of the Fins Bois? The Vaudon Fine Rare Fins Bois Cognac certainly suggests so. With a history of distilling dating back to 1771, they have a history of producing exceptional, unfiltered Cognac.

This Fine Rare special is a young Cognac that has been aged for around 2-3 years, while capturing the fruitier, naturally sweet eaux-de-vie from the Fins Bois. It truly is a young, fresh expression of this cru. 

Pierre Vaudon is the current Maître de Chai of Vaudon Cognac, using a traditional style of Charentais distillation. Pierre matures his Fine Rare Cognac in both loose grain and tight oak barrels, that are both used and new to impart unique flavor. He then carefully blends the Cognac with a series of Fins Bois eaux-de-vie. 

Geographically, the Fins Bois cushions the growth areas of Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Borderies. 

How to Serve

If you are curious to learn the special qualities of this one cru in particular, we recommend allowing this Cognac to first sit in a snifter glass for around 10 minutes before the first nose and sip. Allow the Cognac to develop fully before indulging.

Presentation of the bottle

A simple, 70cl bottle that is slightly overproof at 43% ABV. Vaudon choose to leave this Cognac unfiltered, which allows for its authentic character to emerge. 

About Vaudon Cognac

The Vaudon grounds are composed of 60 hectares with the main estate being located in Fins Bois, the largest of all the Cognac growth regions. Vaudon produces both single cru Fins Bois Cognacs and ‘multicru’ blends of these with the neighbouring Grande Champagne.

Pierre Vaudon, Maître de Chai and also owner of Maison Francois Voyer, is responsible for the Vaudon family estate. The family’s distilling origins can be traced back as far as 1771, and they have always produced outstanding Cognacs, even winning a gold medal for their 1811 vintage Cognac in 1913.
