A Grande Champagne Extra Cognac aged for 25 years
A Cognac exuding total finesse, the Charpentron Cognac Extra is a gorgeous edition from the Premier Cru, the celebrated Grande Champagne. Aged for over a decade in oak barrels in cellars, the eaux-de-vie within the blend have been aged for a least a quarter of a century. Eaux-de-vie from this terroir take longer to age, and generally spend longer in the barrel. When aged in oak casks, the aromas are perfected, softened and rounded - thus enhancing its flavors. A subtle and gentle Cognac.
The Grande Champagne cru in the Cognac region owes its reputation for producing very fine and floral eaux-de-vie largely to its geological makeup. The maritime climate combined with millions of years of fossilization has resulted in chalky soil with a limestone subsoil. This composition makes for excellent drainage, and the position of the terroir means that it receives optimal sunlight exposure.
The Charpentron Extra Cognac is bottled at 40.2% ABV in a 70cl decanter.
The Charpentron Cognac estate
The Charentron estate, the Clos de Merienne, is located in the heart of the Grande Champagne. They have 10 generations of savoir-faire to thank for their family based knowledge of the region and Cognac production.
