Léopold Gourmel Vintage 1990 Grande Champagne Cognac
The Leopold Gourmel Vintage 1990 Grande Champagne Cognac is a vintage jewel selected from the Premier Cru of Cognac. Certified as a vintage from 1990, the eaux-de-vie making up this offering are from both the single year and single cru. Having undergone a lengthy maturation process, tantalizing aromas delight the senses from the nose through to the palate with its silky feel and melange of flavors. The experience rounds off sumptuously with a long, persistent and ultimately satisfying finish.
Leopold Gourmel is a Cognac house that began in 1972 when founder Pierre Voisin first began curating Cognac, and as an ode to his grandfather, the brand was subsequently named Leopold Gourmel. Over the years, Leopold Gourmel has come on leaps and bounds and continues the tradition of excellence established by both Olivier Blanc and Nicolas Sinoquet who have strived to produce the very best quality, naturally produced Cognac that the region has to offer.
Presentation of the bottle
Displayed in a traditional style Cognac bottle and wooden box, it is a Cognac for those who appreciate the finer things in life. The design showcases the deep amber color of the Cognac containing gothic sparkles. Delicate accents of silver on turquoise add a contemporary touch to an otherwise classic decanter design.
How to enjoy
Vintage 1990 is a well-matured Cognac worthy of your utmost attention when tasting. For the best tasting experience, serve at room temperature, neat or on the rocks as a digestive following an indulgent dinner. Finish with a fine cigar to pro-long the experience.
About Leopold Gourmel 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.
