Description

An Indulgent Fins Bois Expression: Pierre Croizet Extra Cognac

Presented in an elegant crystal decanter, Pierre Croizet Extra Cognac has been aged a minimum of six years, but the blend is more accomplished than that of an XO or a Napoleon Cognac. It has been made with grapes sourced from the rather underrated Fins Bois region, where the Pierre Croizet Cognac estate spans some 30 hectares. This growing area is covered by clay and chalk soils known as groies, similar to the Champagne regions but with a different composition. The heavy soil is around 60% clay, known for producing round, supple eaux-de-vie that age fairly quickly, but also maintain a fresh and fruity aroma.

The Croizet family have always passed down knowledge from father and mother to daughter and son, keeping their skills a closely guarded secret. With a fighting spirit to survive, they have overcome many challenges over the years - not least the Phylloxera epidemic of the 1870s, when Amelina Croizet was pivotal in ensuring that the family’s vineyards survived. Over the years, one thing that has remained constant has been to keep the traditional methods firmly in mind, whilst also advancing the Cognac making process.

Today, the family company is in the hands of Leopold Croizet, the latest in a long line of grape growers. Passionate about expanding further, he has acquired further vineyards stretching beyond the Fins Bois region into Petite Champagne - creating potential for a whole new range of eaux-de-vie with a wider appeal. Regardless of where they harvest their grapes, however, Pierre Croizet Cognac only use organic fertilizers on their land, keeping firmly to the traditional methods of their ancestors.

Presentation of the Bottle

With its elegant curves, the decanter is certain to impress anyone who has the chance to hold it. The impeccable design certainly draws the eyes, flowing seamlessly from a wide base, up to the neck - wrapped in gold cord - and an oversized crystal stopper. Instead of a label affixed to the bottle, the designer has opted to suspend a tag on the gold cord, adding just another hint of luxury. 

How to Enjoy Pierre Croizet Extra Cognac

This Cognac is best enjoyed as a digestif served in tulip glasses, or in a snifter glass for those who are looking for a more traditional tasting.

About Pierre Croizet Cognac

Consisting of 30 hectares of vineyards in the Fins Bois growing area as well as some located in the Petite Champagne region, the estate of Pierre Croizet Cognac spans back in time and over the generations. This family run cognac house uses organic methods to farm the vines as much as possible, and has had a distinctly female influence throughout the years. This is something that both past and present members of the family are proud of. Leopold Croizet, who heads the house today, has inherited many business skills from his mother as well as other influential members of this traditional cognac producing family.
