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 Tiffon Cognac:
An elegant nose with floral character and a mellow rounded aftertaste with hints of spice and vanilla. Tiffon VSOP can be enjoyed also on ice or long drink in order to highlight the fruitiness of the cognac.
Eye: Burnished gold. An indicator of the fresh flavor and aroma of what is to come.
Nose: Longer ageing process is necessary with Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, and this is evident as the notes of vanilla, honey, cinnamon come through. A lively taste of fruit balances woody notes. Dried...
Otards VSOP combines a strong nose with floar notes, and green fruit with a rougher, earthy tobacco note in the mouth. Slight hint of spices and vanilla, a great product with a solid finish. Clearly some tobacco hints.
