A de Fussigny cognacs are beautifully elaborated in the company’s own distillery, founded in 1814 in the historical center of Cognac, France, on the banks of the Charente River. The river proximity creates a perfect hygrometry in the cellars and accordingly excellent aging conditions. The house hallmark is to combine traditional elaboration methods with a very modern and innovative packaging and brand image. The proximity to the river make for perfect hygrometry and allows the aromas of the to unfold. The product design is extremely different to that of traditional cognacs, the information on the cognac, such as age, name, percentage etc. is handwritten on the label, which makes it very personal.
Tasting review by Raymond Ragnaud:
On the eye, intense bright gold, reflection bronze. On the nose, yellow fruits and flowers, yellow peaches, melon and tobacco. On the palate, vegetable grape skin notes, clove, final on spices and a slight musky notes with a subtle exceptional soft vanilla.
Tasting review from Bertrand Cognac:
Nose: Woody and spicy, revealing forceful, yet subtle tones right from the start. Swirl to release discreet floral tones.
Palate: A f ull and bold body, revealing spicy notes of coriander and pepper.
Eye: A golden hue.
Nose: The most evocative Yuletide aromas; think candied fruits such as dried orange, cinnamon, clove, coffee, star anise, cardamom.
Palate: The beauty of this Cognac is that it depends on how long you decide to let it mature...
