Proefbeoordeling

Eye: Glimmering copper. 

Nose: Sandalwood and cigar leaves followed by toffee, marzipan and fresh honey. Finally, the delicate perfume of early summer blossom drifts past.

Palate: Liquorice, dried plum and apricot, developing into caramel notes and honey. Dry fruit and toffee build to a smouldering intensity that lingers on the palate seemingly forever.

Omschrijving

Two Centuries in a Bottle: L'Essence de Courvoisier

A high-end Cognac from the House of Courvoisier, L'Essence de Courvoisier Cognac is a truly rare gem and the lasting legacy of House of Courvoisier’s fifth Master Blender, Jean-Marc Olivier. This blend comprises over 100 exceptionally rare eaux-de-vie, some dating back to the beginning of the 20th Century, complemented with younger components from the early 21st Century to mark Courvoisier’s innovations in distillation and barrel-making techniques. Several crus have been used in the blend, but we know that this Cognac house only uses grapes from the Champagne regions, the Borderies and Fins Bois. For their maturation, Courvoisier selects fine-grained Limousin oak from the Forest of Tronçais, famous for its soft vanilla notes and gentle spice. 

Patrice Pinet, current Master Blender at House of Courvoisier, said of L’Essence that it is "a timeless blend of the finest eaux-de-vie from the last two centuries, hand-selected as the most innovative of their generation to create a definitive Cognac for any era".

Courvoisier’s reputation as a Cognac for the elite dates back to their beginnings when a small wine and spirits shop owned by Emmanuel Courvoisier and Louis Gallois was visited by Napoleon Bonaparte himself. They soon became a supplier of Cognac for the Emperor, followed by royal families across Europe. Today the Cognac house’s popularity extends to a different type of royalty - including rappers like Busta Rhymes and P. Diddy - a change that has been embraced by Courvoisier. L’Essence de Courvoisier is the perfect expression of this brand’s ability to move with the times, blending the old with the new. The result is striking - and sure to impress their loyal followers.

Presentation of the Bottle

L’Essence’s teardrop-shaped crystal decanter is inspired by the signet rings handed out by Napoleon Bonaparte to his most courageous commanders; the bottle is elegantly curved, topped with a weighty diamond-cut stopper. Sculpted by a handful of craftsmen at Baccarat, a centuries-old crystal house in France, this creation is a true labor of love. The luxurious black lacquer presentation box opens up like a book, sealed with a gold medallion. 

How to Enjoy L'Essence de Courvoisier Cognac

L’Essence de Courvoisier is a Cognac to impress. Serve in tall tulip glasses at special occasions, or simply enjoy with a fine cigar.

Over Courvoisier Cognac

Courvoisier behoort tot de vier toonaangevende Cognachuizen in de wereld - ook wel bekend als de 'Grote Vier'. Volgens de legende koos keizer Napoléon zelf Courvoisier als zijn favoriete Cognac, daarom wordt Courvoisier ook wel "De Cognac van Napoleon" genoemd. Het bedrijf dateert van 1828 en heeft sindsdien haar hoofdkantoor in de stad Jarnac. Met prestigieuze flessen zoals Courvoisier Napoléon of Josephine staat het Cognachuis aan de top van de markt voor luxe gedistilleerde dranken. De Courvoisier VS, VSOP en Rose Liqueur zijn ook erg populair. De drank is sterk ingeburgerd in de Amerikaanse Hip Hop cultuur met Busta Rhymes en P.Diddy die het lied "Pass the Courvoisier" opdragen aan het traditionele merk.
