The Merlet VS Cognac is a great example of a blend of this quality. This is a blend of eaux-de-vie from various different terroirs of the region - something done specifically to ensure a consistent quality: most are from the Fins Bois growth region, with some from Bons Bois and some from Petite Champagne. Each has been aged for a minimum of two years.
This vibrant young Cognac is slightly woody and delicately fruity, making it the perfect Cognac to enjoy mixed with soda or sparkling water. A great example of a VS Cognac, and if you've yet to discover the range of Merlet, then this would be a fabulous introduction.

Palate: Light, with subtle wood
With a traceable history dating back to 1850, the Merlet family have continued to produce cognac, alongside a continually growing range of other products, to the current day. Headed today by Gilles Merlet, his sons Pierre and Luc joined the business a few years back, bringing with them a new generation of enthusiasm and direction. Although the house Distillerie Merlet & Fils originally produced eaux-de-vie for some of the most prestigious cognac houses in the world of cognac, they are now famous in their own right, not only for their quality cognacs, but for their innovative range of other products that sell around the globe.
