How to enjoy
Sip and savour the Bourgoin Brut de Fût 1998 Cognac from a tulip glass, at room temperature, as the narrow top of this type of glass will delicately distribute the arrival of aromas during the tasting. By adding a dash of ice or mineral water, you are able to alter the tasting experience slightly, as this will open up the aromas even more.
Very craft! With all its ups and downs
So if you want a craft cognac, this is what you need. probably one of the hottest craft products in the cognac sector... great identity and bottle, but the downside is the slightly rough taste. It's a brut de fut which means it's high proof, and it's a vintage cognac.. and craft.. and artisanal. So just be prepared that this may get a bit rough on the palate, but real.
