The Normandin Mercier 1976 Cognac is a single vineyard, single vintage cognac that has been created with full respect for the purest methods of cognac production. The eaux-de-vie was first aged for 18 months in new oak barrels. These were then toasted slightly to further allow for the aromas to be infused to the liquid within. Finally the eaux-de-vie was moved to ancient barrels to complete the aging process.
Each step was overseen by the BNIC. This cognac was well-deservedly awarded the gold medal in the International Wine and Spirits Competition 2016.

Tasting review by Normandin Mercier:
Well balanced, both on the nose and on the palate. Aromas of lily and orange bark - a very natural cognac.
Concentrating solely on cognacs produced from both the Petite and Grande Champagne, Cognac J Normandin-Mercier is based in the beautiful surroundings of Chateau de la Peraudiere. The brand remains faithful to its century old traditions to create cognacs that range from a VSOP upwards, along with a selection of Pineau de Charentes. This family run cognac house is today headed by Edouard, Jean-Marie and Audrey Normandin, who together strive to ensure their products are created with the personal touch and expertise for which the brand has become known for.
