Description

Tale of Two Terroirs: Chainier VSOP Fine Champagne Cognac

A lively and fresh expression from this independent producer, the Chainier VSOP Fine Champagne Cognac combines 50% eaux-de-vie from the Premier Cru with 50% eaux-de-vie from the Petite Champagne region. Aged for six to ten years, this expression is matured well beyond the minimum required for a VSOP Cognac. The first maturation period takes place in new oak casks for around six months, after which the eaux-de-vie are moved into older Limousin oak casks. Just like their VS Cognac, Chainier’s VSOP release is blended three times in order to bring it to 40% ABV, and filtered at each blending. 

The Chainier family, originally from the Petite Champagne region, have been making Cognac and Pineau de Charentes for generations. It was in 1970 that Guy Chainier and his son Dominique began to work together on a range of Cognacs, and in the 1980s Dominique Chainier took over the family property in Arthenac to develop the retail side of the business. Branching out from the smaller of the two Champagne regions, the family purchased an 18-hectare vineyard in Grande Champagne, expanding their product potential significantly.

Fiercely independent, the family continue marketing their own products today, with Dominique Chainier and his grandson Clément reaching people around the world through their website as well as numerous trade fairs.

Presentation of the Bottle

The Chainier VSOP Fine Champagne Cognac comes in a tall, straight bottle, a classic style which was originally popular in the 19th century. The vintage-style label features the Chainier emblem and the bottle is sealed with gold foil on the neck. 

How to Enjoy Chainier VSOP Fine Champagne Cognac

This fruity, lively expression is equally wonderful in a long drink or cocktail as it is neat. Its rich palate makes it a great pairing with desserts, coffee or a cigar. The Chainier family also recommends trying it in a hot toddy with lemon and honey - perfect to enjoy on a cold winter’s night.
