Le Roch Extra Cognac
The Le Roch Extra Cognac is a blend born from the discovery of some very old batches of Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie, by a widow who inherited Cognacs produced in the Angeac-Champagne region, one of the finest terroirs in the region. These very old batches were then blended with older, more floral Cognacs and reduced slightly in water, before being left to age in small barrels for decades deep down in the Le Roch cellars.
This mature Cognac is a fine example of a top-quality Cognac and offers extremely good value for money. Slightly overproof at 43%, this Petite Champagne blend is an excellent choice for a Cognac to bring out on special occasions.
The small house of La Roch offers a small range of high-quality Cognacs, and if you've yet to discover their wares, then this will certainly be one that will have you returning to discover more. Fans of Petite Champagne Cognacs certainly won't be disappointed.
Presentation of the bottle
Displayed in an opulent carafe style bottle, this Extra Cognac oozes luxury from the inside out. Fine details including its golden stopper and intricate design work on the label work and branding reflect the meticulous craftsmanship that goes into producing fine Cognacs. A true showstopper, dripping in history - this Le Roch offering is sure to stand out on the liquor shelf amongst other Cognacs in a collection.
How to enjoy
A well-matured Extra Cognac like this one deserves your utmost attention when tasting. Hold the tasting in the right environment and amongst the right company to ensure the ambience is optimal, then pour into tulip glasses, allowing the Cognac to stand for a few minutes before taking in the aromas one sip at a time. Pair with a quality cigar of your choice to prolong the tasting late into the evening.
Cognac for one person
At a wedding ceremony in China, tasting this cognac is very attractive. It is different from the four brands of cognac. Fresh orange peel and candied fruit fragrance are strong, Leather Fragrance and wood fragrance hang along with the liquor into the throat. It is a very pleasant wine. The host family sent me a bottle of cognac home to enjoy slowly. Thank God for the delicious cognac.
