This Millesime / Vintage cognac presents a very delicate nose: strong spices and vanilla at first, then slight notes of tea. On the palate it's very round, exotic hints and then slight wood aromas. Very balanced, the finish is long and typical for a Petite Champagne cognac.
This cognac house has always relied on natural processes. From growing the grapes to picking, maturing, distilling, aging and bottling them, Gourmel cognac is free of any chemicals, pesticides or additives to enhance color in respect of nature and the final product. The philosophy of the company is to concentrate on quality not quantity, which means that one year the outcome may be higher than in others. This is further shown by the radical decision to produce only pure vintage cognacs, so there is no blending of different years in order to create VS, VSOP or XO cognacs for instance. To go with this authentic approach, the design of Gourmel is simple and modern.
