Normandin Mercier L'ESSENTIEL

NEW Exclusive Limited Edition

RALENTIR - RÉFLÉCHIR - RÉUNIR

X

TASTING NOTES

Eye: Brilliantly polished amber.

Nose: The essence of Grande Champagne. Dry, sun-drenched earth is softened by a gentle hint of vanilla, slowly becoming more mature with cracked pepper and a tell-tale rancio, revealing the age of this Cognac. The humidity of the cellar speaks loudly here, with more florals than fruit taking center stage.

Palate: Well-integrated and pleasantly sharp, providing warm spices at the front. The wood notes are prominent but not overpowering, creating a balance of tannins for the otherwise subtle fruit and florals. At 41,4%, this is certainly not too round, fading into a long, powerful finish that lasts an age.

ABV: 41,4 %

Growth Area: Grande Champagne

Bottle size: 70 cl

Please note that we will collect orders over the next two weeks, and in the meantime Edouard and his small team will begin bottling. Shipping will begin straight after.

But take a look at the other stunning Normandin Mercier Cognacs we have available in our online shop.

Created for those quiet moments at home, the new L’ESSENTIEL by Normandin Mercier is a reflection of what happens when we stop to notice the good things in life. Resting in a cellar for over three decades, this outstanding cask has been waiting for a moment to be truly appreciated -- and what a moment that will be.

This is a time to ralentir, réfléchir, réunir - slow down, reflect and reconnect with those closest to us. Patience is everything when it comes to Cognac production and every good cellar master knows not to rush perfection. In the same way, we should not rush life, but take time to appreciate the little treasures around us. In rural France, the world moves slower during these long summer days - especially in the Cognac region, where this is a time to rest and recuperate strength for the upcoming harvest.

For L’ESSENTIEL, cellarmaster Edouard Normandin has bottled this unique Cognac aged for over 30 years in oak cask. Expertly crafted from grapes harvested in the Grande Champagne, this expression is a snapshot of a region famous for its ability to produce fine eaux-de-vie, thanks to its chalky soil and limestone subsoil. The optimal position of the terroir means that it also benefits from season-long sun exposure - only one of the reasons why this is considered the Premier Cru of Cognac.

With a history spanning back over 100 years, the house of J. Normandin Mercier has always produced eaux-de-vie from the Fine Champagne region. Crafting their wares with a 'quality over quantity’ philosophy, Edouard, Jean-Marie and Audrey Normandin continue to produce cognac using the same methods as their ancestors. The family have always welcomed visitors to their estate with open arms; with this L’ESSENTIEL edition, they invite you to taste the most precious contents of their cellar.

By purchasing L’ESSENTIEL, you’ll be supporting the Cognac producer directly, and helping to maintain their livelihood. The bottle will be shipped directly from their cellar to your door. At Cognac Expert, we believe in supporting local Cognac makers and farming families, constantly exchanging ideas with our neighbors. After all, without them, we wouldn’t be here.

Only a very small quantity of 60 bottles will be produced for this edition, available exclusively at Cognac-Expert.com. As with all great things, they come to those who wait that little bit longer. So please be aware there might be a small delay in delivery at this moment in time.
