Couprie Hors d'Age Cognac
Cognac Couprie Hors d'Age Cognac is a rich, expertly blended Cognac that's been distilled in a traditional generations-old 10 hectolitre pot still. It was then aged in Limousin oak barrels in the calm, dark and humid cellars of Maison Couprie. Epitomising the expertise and dedication of several generations of family ancestors, Couprie Hors d’Age reflects the best possible use of oak, which is represented through the Cognac's beautiful mahogany color and an intense rancio aromatics.
The Folle Blanche grapes used to create this Hors d'Age give the Cognac a bold and unusual character. A true Premier cru delight revealing prominent notes of leather and cigar-box, aromas which are typical of fine, old Cognacs.
The house of Couprie is run by a family of vine-growers that have been based in the Grande Champagne area of Cognac since 1730. Putting both their passion and skills to good use, this Cognac house maintains centuries of family tradition by distilling their own wine from start to finish - all in the quest of producing fine, flavourful and elegant Cognac purely all for the enjoyment of Cognac connoisseurs.
