Tasting review

Eye: Deep mahogany.

Nose: Ancient, reminiscent of beeswax-polished furniture. Leather upholstery and cedarwood are surrounded by blooming bouquets of narcissus and jasmine.

Palate: The florals and wood turn to spice: ginger and nutmeg. The sweetness of licorice and honey gives an outstanding mouthfeel, leading to a finish of exceptional length. Must be tried to be believed. 

Description

François Voyer Collection Personnelle Lot No. 4 Cognac: a Rare Taste of the Past

Only 57 bottles were ever made of the François Voyer Collection Personnelle Lot No. 4 Cognac. The eaux-de-vie for this Grande Champagne Hors d'Age expression have been aged between 80 and 90 years, which is one of the reasons we’re not surprised that Whisky Magazine described this as “an absolute must-see.”  Voyer's goal is to respect the authenticity of these exceptional eaux-de-vie in order to fully enjoy all the expressions of the terroir. Following this philosophy, the house has not filtered this Cognac, allowing nearly a century of complexity to come through on the nose and palate.

Only the finest high-acidity Ugni Blanc grapes from the Premier Cru have been used for this blend. The house of François Voyer uses French oak barrels from the Limousin, Bercée, Gâvre and Reno Valdieu forests, housed in both damp and dry cellars to optimise the character of each cask that lays in waiting. The result is nothing short of extraordinary. 

The Chauchet-Voyer family have been distilling and aging eaux-de-vie in oak barrels since the 1870s – for over five generations. Focusing on the Grande Champagne cru, they work with numerous winegrowers in the area, as the domaine itself is a small-scale producer with only 28 hectares of land. They are, however, dedicated to maintaining a sustainable agriculture approach to protect biodiversity and public health and was one of the first 20 domains to obtain the High Environmental Value (HEV) certification.

Presentation of the Bottle

Crafted in a classic 19th-century style, the slim bottle features a gold wax seal and medallion complemented by a delicate label with hand-written details. The highly-polished wooden presentation box comes with a metal plaque and a certificate of authenticity.

How to Enjoy

For the lucky few who get to try this Cognac, we can only recommend that they try it neat at room temperature. Pour it and let it stand for a full 15 minutes before tasting, then take a sip and taste the passing of time. After 90 years of seasons turning, there is no rush. Just enjoy the moment.
