Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne
Sophie & Max Sélection N° 3
Sophie & Max Sélection N° 3 marks the perfect continuation of our Sophie & Max Sélection limited edition series. Our passion is to work in close collaboration with small Cognac houses and producers that inspire our imagination. It’s absolutely possible to find people who like doing things a little differently in the seemingly regulated world of Cognac-making. Seph and Thérèse have an enchanting way of operating within this rural setting, brightening it up with their worldly sophistication, open-minded spirit, and humor. It never gets boring “chez les Bertrands.” We love that. The Bertrand family estate is situated in the heart of the Petite Champagne region, where they work full circle, from the vine to the bottle.
Following Sophie & Max Sélection N° 2, we wanted to create a Cognac that was equally old but totally different in taste and style. Thanks to Seph’s incredible talent, we succeeded. The Cognac is absolutely incredible, smooth and peppery at the same time, so sophisticated and mature, but with a light, modern twist.
Presentation of the bottle
We ended up choosing the designation Réserve to describe this mature blend, because it was actually used on one of Bertrand’s Cognacs from the generation of Thérèse’s grandparents. As for both other limited editions of Sélection, Sophie's husband Brian designed the labels. He used a beautiful 100% recycled paper combined with gold and a dark elegant green to create an updated version of the old bottle.
Special offer: The first 50 customers to purchase a bottle of Sophie & Max Sélection N°3 Réserve by Cognac Bertrand will gain entry to an exclusive fireside chat with Sophie, Max, Seph and Thérèse. During this unique online gathering, you’ll of course learn about the Cognac Bertrand house, Seph and Thérèse’s story, and the Sélection N°3 Réserve Cognac, but you’ll also be able to share your questions with Sophie, Max, Thérèse, and Seph on anything and everything Cognac-related. It’s a wonderful opportunity and promises to be a conversation full of insight, opinions, and reflections. Don’t miss out!
