Boasting a long and aristocratic history, the house of Chateau de Plassac Cognac occupies an enviable position close to the town of Saint Genis de Saintonge. Producing wines and eaux-de-vie for the past 200 years, the house is also closely linked to the famous champagne producers Comtes de Dampierre in the north of the country. Today, Chateau de Plassac produces a range of cognacs to suit all palates and pockets, from cognacs suitable for mixing in cocktails, through to their XO and Napoleon range. All are produced from the Chateau’s own Ugni Blanc and Colombard vines that grow beneath the impressive backdrop of Chateau de Plassac.
Tasting review by Park Cognac:
One first encounters the combined aromas of dried spring flowers, caramelized apples, and macerated cherries opening up into a structured yet delicate palate, resulting in a perfectly robust and subtly peered aftertaste.
