Growth area & soil: Fins Bois
The La Guilde Lorignac Fins Bois 2011 Cognac is a real testimony to how the terroir places its stamp on the eaux-de-vie produced there. Lorignac is a village found in the Fins Bois growth region, near the estuary of the Gironde river. This unique location creates Cognacs that are fresh and mineral-rich - ideal for those who enjoy a fresh and flavorsome taste.
What makes this Cognac so unique is that the year of 2011 was infamous for its high temperatures. This led to an early harvest, and one that was extremely favorable for bringing out the summer fruit bouquet. The village of Lorignac has long had its roots in the wine and Cognac industry. The name comes from the latin, "Villa de Bacchus". If you're looking for a Cognac that's both delicious AND a talking point, then your search has come to a fruitful end.
Light, refreshing and uplifting
What a winner
I tasted this some weeks ago at a tasting in Amsterdam, totally fell in love.. and now I realize how cheap it is compared to other french brandy. We don't have it here in the Netherlands but I just bought it here, fortunately it's available.
About La Guilde du Cognac
La Guilde du Cognac is not so much a Cognac house, rather it’s a way to bring a range of products to market that’ve been created by small, artisan producers of the region. It’s the creation of Maison Villevert, a house that boasts a history that can be traced back as far as 1487. The concept is about bringing the expertise of some of the most talented small producers to the notice of a larger global population: a population of Cognac connoiseurs who understand and cherish true quality when they taste it.
