Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Extra Francois Voyer Cognac should go down in the dictionary as the description of what makes Grande Champagne the premier growing area of Cognac. It offers a true celebration of aromas and tastes - from oriental spices right through to the unmistakable perfume of cigar box that characterises truly well aged eau-de-vie.
This is a Cognac that both delights and teases. From the first taste 'explosion' to the lengthy journey of change and contrast - it cajoles and beguiles, continuing to delight right to the very end of it's wonderfully satisfying, long-lasting finish.
Enjoy it straight - or, if you're the adventurous type, on the rocks. This is a Cognac over which it's essential to take your time. After all, why on earth would you rush one of life's true pleasures...?

Please Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful...
I am lovely, elegant and ever-so-perfectly balanced. Some think that I lack personality, but that's because I do so many things so very well. My harmonious flavors glide smoothly and subtly over the palate. My nose is gentle, but full and rewarding. Take your time with me and appreciate a great, hand-crafted cognac.
A very full masterpiece by Pierre Vaudon
I think this is a great blend - and don't forget this is produced by small artisanal producer Francois Voyer. So this is not a huge brand here selecting those blends.. Lovely Grande Champagne Extra Cognac: Very rich, and balanced. Chapeau Monsieur cellar master Pierre Vaudon!
