Petite yet Powerful: the Petite Champagne VSOP from A de Fussigny
This particular Fussigny Petite Champagne VSOP is produced exclusively with Ugni Blanc grapes from the Petite Champagne growing region, known to many as the second best Cognac cru (after Grande Champagne).
This Fine Champagne blend contains a powerful selection of eaux-de-vie that deliver aromas of apples, pears, candied fruits and vanilla. Winner of Double Gold at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, this carefully crafted Cognac can hold its own against its counterparts from the neighboring Grande Champagne region.
Located on the banks of the Charente river, the A de Fussigny estate’s distillery and cellars date back to 1814, rich in a history of “gabarres” passing by on barges, transporting and trading the precious eaux-de-vie and wine that render this region famous.
Their more than 200-year-old cellars allow the aging process to take place in a humid environment, offering a unique and high quality to Fussigny’s produce. An overall well-balanced drinking experience that celebrates and draws attention to the excellent flavors produced by the chalky limestone soils of the Petite Champagne region.
