Christmas Cognacs

Christmas is coming

With Christmas now just around the corner, we’ve got a lot to be excited about over the next couple of weeks.

While we know Christmas may seem like a little way off yet – the current worldwide logistical situation means that ordering early is more important than ever this year. Spare any disappointment and ensure your festive treats arrive on time by filling your carts now.

A Merry Ode to Cognac

The children are in bed
And the decorations on the tree
Now it’s time to treat yourself
To some festive eaux-de-vie

This is when you thank yourself 
For stocking up the shelf 
As you have two exquisite bottles
From the Cognac Expert elf

The hardest question is 
Which one to enjoy first? 
Will it be the Pasquet 
Or the Voyer to quench your thirst?

Maybe Le Cognac de Noel 
From L’Esprit de Famille 
With its notes of nutmeg, cinnamon 
And hints of orange peel

Perhaps the Extra Christmas Cognac 
From the vineyards of Grande Champagne 
With aromas of dried fruit, spices 
And a finish that remains

The red wax of Prulho Hors d'Age
Has certainly caught your eye
From Grande Champagne - what a "Voyage"
A truly excellent buy

The Sophie & Max Edition Number 2
Is impossible to resist
Aged over a couple of decades, too
What a treasure to exist

Whichever bottle takes your fancy 
One thing will be true 
It’s bound to be a merry evening 
With a glass of Cognac to accompany you.

Our Cognac Expert Calendar podcasts have just begun. Tune in and listen to cognac makers talk about the history of the spirit and the ins and outs of the whole process.

There’s also 10% off the latest Cognac of the Month: Laurichesse Le Chai de Mon Père 104 with a rating of 87/100 – check out the full tasting review from the Cognac Expert connoisseur Taylor on our blog.

Pasquet’s latest offering Noel Cognac is another highly rated Cognac delight that we think will serve perfectly at the table this Christmas. Since Noël translates as Christmas in French, it seems almost fated that the spiced aromas of this special blend are so accurately reminiscent of the festive season, when in fact, it was actually named in honour of recent Pasquet ancestors; Noël and his wife Marie-France.

This is a lovely Cognac with a wonderful balance of fruit, wood, and spice – with particular emphasis on the spices. It’s hard to find fault with the Cognac and the overall tasting experience. I’m not left wanting for anything. But, it’s important to remember that this is a mature complex blend. It should, therefore, not be gauged relative to single cask bottlings, or exclusive vintage bottlings. It should be measured against other blends of roughly the same age. That all being said, since this is a selection from Cognac Expert, produced by Francois Voyer, for the holiday season, I see this Cognac perfectly apt as a gift for any lover of fine spirits, and I especially see this Extra Christmas Edition as a perfect close to the holiday meals that are approaching in the coming weeks.

Although the French translation of Noël is Christmas, and so it seems almost fated that the spiced aromas of this Cognac are so accurately reminiscent of the festive season, this Cognac is in fact named to honor the charming couple of Noël and Marie-France.

The story of Noël and Marie-France

Noël is the second of five children, and as the first son, he was destined to inherit responsibility for his family’s vineyard, as his father had. However, in the mid-60s a tragic tractor accident meant that Noël had to prematurely step into his role and take charge of the vines and the cattle as a teenager up until the mid-80s.
