The Extra Francois Voyer Cognac is one that is the epitome of why the Grande Champagne terroir is known as the 'premier cru'. It is a ‘fiesta’ of exciting aromas and tastes; oriental spices, vanilla, dried fruit and nuts, mixed with the unmistakable perfume of cigars that characterize very old eaux-de-vie.
This cognac will delight and tease, with a strong taste explosion that threatens to overwhelm your senses and yet beguiles them to the finish.
Enjoy it straight or on the rocks. This is not a cognac to be hurried; leave it warming in the glass for at least 10 minutes to allow the bouquet develop. Sip slowly and relish the complexities of its flavors - With Voyer ‘Extra’ you have unlocked the secret heart of the Premier Cru of Cognac. Best before a meal, after a dessert or with coffee.
