Description

A Bons Bois Cognac for Cocktail and Seafood Pairing: Château des Plassons VSP

The world of Cognac can become all the more inviting when you discover the small producers hidden behind closed cellar doors. This artisan house is a fine example of such craft. The Chateau des Plassons VSP is the youngest in their range, and perfectly showcases their ability to produce exceptional eaux-de-vie.

Aged for 2 years in Limousin oak casks in their peaceful one-hundred-year-old winery, the Château des Plassons Napoléon Cognac is a selection over 3 different eaux-de-vie grown with Ugni Blanc grapes in the Bois Bois terroir, where the chateau itself is located.

Grown in a picturesque setting, the Chateau des Plassons vineyard was first established in the 17th century. The current vines are over 30 years old, and over time the vineyard has been extended considerably. Set in an exceptional geological plateau of limestone, this picturesque setting also provides the perfect conditions for producing fine Cognac.

Crafted by two young and passionate brothers, David and Julien Pannaud, they have drawn upon years of savoir-faire with a history dating all the way back to the 1500s. The Pannaud brothers take time to allow the wine to ferment naturally, thanks to carefully maintaining high temperatures throughout the process.

In the outbuildings of the chateau, they use a double distillation process in hundred-year-old Alambic Charentais stills made out of copper. This is the crucial point where the Cognac’s aromatic quality is decided.

Serving Suggestions

The Bons Bois terroir is renowned for its ability to age quickly, so this young Cognac truly demonstrates its value from the first nose alone. This VSP Cognac should be enjoyed as an aperitif, or lengthened by a soft drink or cocktail. You can also try it with seafood or a rich chocolate dessert to really bring out its character.
