Gautier VS Cognac

Gautier Cognac

Embodying the first ageing of eaux-de-vie, the Gautier VS Cognac has been carefully crafted by the cellar master of Maison Gautier.  It's harmony is due to the careful blend of Cognacs from Fins Bois and Bons Bois that creates a perfectly balanced taste - one somewhat unusual in such a young Cognac.

Gautier recommend this to be enjoyed on the rocks, or perhaps in a cocktail.  And it's quality hasn't gone unnoticed by experts around the world, as it's been decorated with awards many times.  These include:

Silver medal, International Wine & Spirit Competition, UK, 2010

Silver medal, San Francisco World Spirit Competition, US, 2010

Tasting Notes

Tasting review:

Eye: Pale golden colour

Nose: Fruity aroma, with lively, spicy flavours enhanced by a hint of vanilla.

Palate: Offers lots of finesse on the palate. Young, well-balanced 

Gautier Cognac is amongst the oldest cognac houses, with a very unique location. Gautier is based in Aigre on the Osme river, and ages in an 18th century water mill. Aigre is also referred to as the "Little Venice" of Charente. The proximity to the water and the resulting humidity and temperature in the cellars gives the cognac a recognizable taste. This cognac house unites ancient history with a modern view on the cognac market. It caters both professional cognac connoisseurs and aficionados as well as younger consumers that like to experiment with cognac and try out new and trendy cocktails.
