Creating a range of cognacs from Trois Etoiles (three stars) to XO and beyond, Cognac Drouet et Fils remains faithful to the traditional production methods of old. Today, Drouet cognacs can be found throughout the world, with their distinguished packaging and the unique bottle shapes of their top of the range cognacs making them easy to recognize.
Tasting review by Drouet & Fils:
Color : sumptuous cherry red colour with copper reflections. Aroma : fruity and intense with aromas of blackcurrant, griotte cherries and blackberries. Taste : strong, smooth body, impressive fruity length with chocolate notes at the finish.
A wonderful set that contains 5 full sized bottles from this much sought after series from the experts at Frapin Cognac. Each bottle is a blend of three very special vintage eau-de-vie, each from the premier terroir of the region, Grande Champagne.
Tasting review by Raymond Ragnaud:
Color: deep amber
Nose: floral expressions with various plant aromas
Palate: tender, almost 'fleshy', with strong tones of spicy grape, plum, and mirabelle plum.
Finish: daffodil, cherries, and ginger.
