The Leopold Gourmel Vintage 1990 Grande Champagne Cognac is a lovely cognac from this quality house. Certified as a vintage from 1990, this is from the premier cru of the region - Grande Champagne. Presented in a traditional style cognac bottle and wooden box, this is a cognac for those who appreciate the finer things in life.
The aging process has allowed the colors to deepen, and as such this is a cognac that teases every one of the senses. Deep amber to the eye, tantalizing aromas on the nose, and on the palate it thrills with its silky feel and the melange of flavors. And of course, that all important finish, which in this case is long, persistant, and ultimately satisfying.

Tasting notes by Leopold Gourmel:
Eye: Deep amber with "roman" colors & gothic sparkles
Nose: Enticing finesse, harmonized notes with a happy marriage between wood & wild flowers, vanilla & red fruits
Palate: Silky on the tongue completed by a nice opening & lingering finish. Notes of wood enhanced by light spicy flavors & touch of vanilla. Velvety finish with delicate persistency
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.
