François Voyer Extra Christmas Cognac
The Francois Voyer Extra Christmas Cognac is an exclusive limited edition of 100 bottles, for Cognac Expert only. Offering infinite depth and aromatic complexity, this Extra Cognac is representative of an aged to perfection, exceptional quality Cognac - from the Premier Cru. Undergoing a lengthy maturation process, Francois Voyer Extra is made up of Ugni blanc eaux-de-vie that spent a grand total of 30 years in old oak casks. A Grande Champagne jewel that is sure to complete your festivities with its sensational flavors and unrivalled finesse.
The house of Voyer has been distilling and aging eaux-de-vie in oak barrels since the 1870s, for over five family generations. With a focus on the Grande Champagne cru, they work with numerous winegrowers in the area, as the Voyer estate itself is a small-scale producer with only 28 hectares of land. Dedicated to maintaining a sustainable agriculture approach to protect biodiversity and public health, Maison Francois Voyer was one of the first 20 domains to obtain the High Environmental Value (HEV) certification.
Presentation of the bottle
Showcasing the stunning mahogany color of the eaux-de-vie, Extra Cognac arrives in a classic, slim bottle with a festive air of elegance. It serves as the perfect addition to the dinner table this holiday season, or as a generous gift to someone special. The bottle is embellished with a subtly merry illustration, that allows this Cognac to stand stylishly on the spirit shelf all year round. The hand-written signature of the cellar-master himself completes the bottle design, and highlights the exclusivity of the Cognac with a personalised finishing touch.
How to enjoy
Francois Voyer Extra Cognac is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. A well matured Cognac like this one, should be appreciated in its entirety, so it may be deemed a waste to mix it with other components of a cocktail for example. We recommend leaving this Extra Cognac to sit in a tulip glass for around 8-10 minutes before you begin the tasting. This allows the aromas to develop nicely. Drink it cold as a merry aperitif, or without ice, at room temperature following an indulgent Christmas meal.
