Maxime Pinard VS Cognac
The Maxime Pinard VS Cognac is a fine example of the best qualities that come from the youngest VS Cognac classification. Created from a blend of eaux-de-vie grown on the family estate located on the Ile d’Oleron, each component has been aged for a minimum of three years. A top-quality young blend that offers a multitude of uses.
The craft house of Maxime Pinard has been in existence since 1889, and today boasts vineyards of 90 hectares. The location, close to the Atlantic Ocean, leads to Cognacs with the unique taste of the sea grown into their very core. And this vibrant VS is certainly no exception.
Presentation of the bottle
Dressed in a simple, traditional style Cognac bottle, it is what's inside that impresses the most. Nevertheless, refined gold detailing and a pop of blue bring the bottle to life with elegance. An illustration of the casks is imprinted on the front of the label and hones in on the longstanding history that is carried with this Cognac. The ideal gift for someone looking to explore lesser-known Cognac brands or for those who appreciate vibrant Cognacs brimming with energy.
How to enjoy
This VS can be enjoyed in many ways - for those who enjoy the fire of youth, sip this Cognac neat or over ice. It’s a sweet blend that pairs exquisitely with tonic, or in a cocktail. And for those who love to add the exotic flavour of Cognac to their cooking, the house of Maxime Pinard recommends using this VS in traditional flambé recipes.
