J.R. Brillet Seltz VS Cognac is a light, golden colored cognac made solely from eaux-de-vie from the Petite Champagne growing region. Enjoy it chilled, on ice, straight, or in a long drink with tonic water, or frozen with smoked salmon and sushi ...
A great VS cognac.
Very pleasantly surprised.
Happened upon this cognac whilst shopping for wine at my regular vintner. Something about it made me decide to take a chance, as i was in the mood for cognac. Immediately struck by the bouquet, very pleasing. Personally i like my cognac straight. Room temperature. No ice, no chaser. this cognac is absolutely perfect for that. Has a warmth and wonderful flavour. It's slightly sweet with a mix of citrus, floral, and vanilla notes. Not sure what barrels they use but... it works. After taste was very pleasing. Thoroughly Enjoyed after dessert with a cigar.
One warning. It drinks rather well that you could easily polish off several glasses pretty quickly.
About Brillet J R Cognac
Proud of its family tradition, Brillet Cognac insists that the history is entirely linked to that of cognac. As early on as 1656, Guy Brillet installed his first alembic (the classic still) at his property in the Grande Champagne. This was the introduction of the double distillation process that creates cognac to this day. The Brillets live off their philosophy that things made with care are more valuable, sticking to traditional techniques of production and packaging. Their motto is not to impress through high maintenance or expensive containers, but rather through a humble and high quality aesthetic: a real family business!
