Tasting review

Review by Leopold Gourmel, the producer: "This Quintessence cognac with eaux-de-vie from the 19th century, is slightly floral, great spices and fruit marriage"

Description

Leopold Gourmel Quintessence 30 Carats Cognac is the superstar in the Gourmel range.  This top end cognac is delightful from every aspect: from the complexity of taste to the presentation in a unique decanter.  

A blend of Fins Bois aux-de-vies, from Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grapes, each component has been aged for a minimum of 25 years, and then again for a further 10 years in younger oak barrels, which gives this cognac it's incredible taste explosion.

It's a wonderful, rare gold color, and on the nose reminds one of an old, vintage, Sauternes wine - breath in the minerals, air, and freshness.  On the palate there's a wonderful marriage of fruit, flowers and spices - there's red fruit in there with a touch of chamomile and citronella.  The finish seems to be endless...

Leoopold Gourmel are, of course, incredible proud of this wonderful cognac.  The cellar master says of his creation, "In a world of cognac where the taste has not changed since the 19th century, Quintessence is my vision of an exceptional cognac of our time, inspired by our admiration for the best old vintages of the 1st growth Bordeaux wines."
