An Award-Winning Réserve Cognac from the Grande Champagne Terroir
This carefully crafted Cognac owes its subtle allure to the finest blend of Ugni Blanc grapes, harvested from the bountiful vineyards of the Grande Champagne cru. The Maxime Trijol Réserve Grande Champagne Cognac is a twice award-winning liquor, from a house synonymous with quality and steeped in tradition, where six generations have lovingly honed their craft since 1859. It is a spicer and stronger Cognac compared to the rest of the Trijol range, and the eaux-de-vie has been matured for approximately 35 years in French Limousin oak.
To this day, the family continues to oversee each step and it’s thanks to this intimate relationship between maker and métier that the house delivers a Reserve Cognac with a smooth opulence to mirror the bright, topaz hue of the eau-de-vie. After resting in oak barrels from the Limousin forests, the Cognac comes of age and its mellowness is ready to be savored and enjoyed.
The Grande Champagne is celebrated for its ability to produce fine eaux-de-vie, thanks to the chalky soil and limestone subsoil. The optimal position of the terroir means that it also benefits from season-long sun exposure. There’s a reason why the Grande Champagne is considered the premier cru of Cognac; this excellent bottling is testament to the reliable quality and finesse of this region.
