The S.O.B. Exceptional Francois Voyer Grande Champagne Cognac is a wonderful example of an artisan created product. S.O.B. stands for Selection Olivier Blanc, and has been created to showcase a small, carefully selected group of 5 producers who have shunned the mass-creation of Cognac to concentrate on a hands-on approach. To this end they own their own vineyards within the premier terroir of the region - Grande Champagne, and carry out every aspect of Cognac production in-house.
The end result is a truly wonderful 'extra' quality Cognac that will appeal to any lover of fine liquor. From the moment you set eyes on it, this Cognac offers a treat for all the senses. Best enjoyed neat, in good company, and when you truly have the time to savour the years and hard word that's gone into creating such a delight.

Color: Amber gold
Nose: spontaneous with a noble oxidation, old leather.
Palate: perfectly balanced, incredible structure, deep complexity, almost infinite persistency, perfect marriage of the fruity and floral notes supported by a discreet woody taste.
I must say, these blends Monsieur Blanc selected are of high quality. The bottle seems unspectacular.. but you're wrong!
I really love this new concept.. Although, this one sort of keeps its surprise until the after taste: the nose is a great, then the mouth is sort of balanced but not thaaat remarkable, the finish is absolutely crazy!
