A Multi-cru Marvel - Pierre Vaudon VS Cognac
This particular Vaudon VS is a blend of Fins Bois and Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, producing a complex and elegant flavor profile to enjoy with good company.
Qualities of each cru come together in a marvelous marriage, with white fruits and licorice dominating, the Fins Bois eaux-de-vie offer subtle hints of blackberry, blackcurrant and vanilla on the nose that are offset by Grande Champagne’s white fleshy fruit aromas, such as apple and pear, resulting in a harmonious and refined bouquet.
On the palate, the Fins Bois eaux-de-vie bring a delicate, supple and soft attack whereas the Grande Champagne side develops gradually, offering a fuller body to the Cognac, ending on a lengthy finish.
Pierre Vaudon is well known for both his single and multi cru Cognacs, with his traditional distillation technique on the lees setting him apart from other producers of the region. With every Cognac he produces, simplicity is key, Vaudon makes every effort to find balance in his blends so that every aroma is easily identifiable with every sip.
Pierre Vaudon, born and raised in Charente, has been nicknamed the "gifted child of Cognac", growing up surrounded by vineyards and copper stills. With 18 years of expertise under his belt, he has honed his craft and manages to find the perfect balance between acidity and sweetness with every Cognac he produces. As well as running the François Voyer estate, he established his own brand, Pierre Vaudon, just over 2 years ago. This is a man who lives and breathes Cognac, a cellar master who took his first steps in the family distillery.
