Eye: Warm gold. 

Nose: Aromas of gentle fruit in the form of baked apples and golden raisins, studded with caramel and spices.

Palate: Cinnamon, gingerbread and vanilla play beautifully with the apple notes. The finish is modest but fresh and fruity.

Description

Pierre Croizet VS Cognac: Connecting Past and Future

Pierre Croizet Cognac is native to the Fins Bois region, where their modest estate spans some 30 hectares. The soil of this particular growing area contains smaller patches of chalk that are less porous than that which is found in other crus, producing eaux-de-vie that are full-bodied, supple and fruity. Pierre Croizet VS Cognac is the youngest expression offered by this house, aged for a minimum of two years in French oak. By distilling the wine with a proportion of the lees remaining, even more complex aromas and essential oils can be achieved in the final product. 

The Croizet family have always passed down knowledge from father and mother to daughter and son, keeping their skills a closely guarded secret. With a fighting spirit to survive, they have overcome many challenges over the years - not least the Phylloxera epidemic of the 1870s, when Amelina Croizet was pivotal in ensuring that the family’s vineyards survived. Over the years, one thing that has remained constant has been to keep the traditional methods firmly in mind, whilst also advancing the Cognac making process.

Today, the family company is in the hands of Leopold Croizet, the latest in a long line of grape growers. Passionate about expanding further, he has acquired further vineyards stretching beyond the Fins Bois region into Petite Champagne - creating the potential for a whole new range of eaux-de-vie with a wider appeal. Regardless of where they harvest their grapes, however, Pierre Croizet Cognac only uses organic fertilizers on their land, keeping firmly to the traditional methods of their ancestors.

Presentation of the Bottle

Tall and elegant, like many of the bottles from this Cognac house, the Pierre Croizet VS Cognac uses a classic style popular in the 19th Century. The understated label adds to the minimalist look, allowing the liquid to speak for itself.

How to Enjoy Pierre Croizet VS Cognac

This exuberant and fruity VS Cognac is ideal to drink on its own, or used in cocktails and aperitifs. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, try it with tonic or with a splash of soda.
