A de Fussigny Extra Cognac
The A de Fussigny Extra Cognac is well deserving of its award winning status, because this is a very good Cognac indeed! As the name suggests, this is a truly well aged offering that comes under the banner of an Extra Cognac. What this means in practical terms is that it’s superior to that of an XO or Napoleon, and has been aged for up to 25 years or more. Not only that, but this A de Fussigny Extra is created from eau-de-vie solely from the premier terroir of the region, Grande Champagne.
It’s certainly a wonderful example of why Cognacs grown in these rich chalky soils are the most sought after of all. If you enjoy the finer things in life, then this is certainly a Cognac to take advantage of. And as with all of the offerings from this forward thinking range, the presentation is as delicious as the golden liquor held within.
