A bold blend for any occasion, Delpeche Fougerat VSOP Cognac
The award-winning VSOP by Delpech Fougerat is a favorite of Cognac connoisseurs on each and every continent, making its name after taking home the prestigious double gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Delpech Fougerat has two estates in the Petite Champagne terroir, with a history dating back to 1777. The family-run business found fame thanks to the quality of the Cognacs they produce, but have equally moved into other spirit markets using various distillation methods, both experimental and traditional.
The bright copper color of their VSOP is a testament to the aging process it has undertaken in Limousin Oak casks at the family's estate in Petite Champagne. Its nose boasts beautiful aromas of vanilla, peach, citrus and dried fruits with a delicately perfumed floral bouquet. It has a well-balanced and fruity palate lifted by sweet notes of caramel and Bourbon vanilla, an elegant drinking experience that boldly blends the kick of citrus with fresh fruit, flowers and gourmand caramel and vanilla. Its long finish lingers on the tongue with a persistent and pleasurable aftertaste.

About Delpech Fougerat Cognac
Cognac Delpech Fougerat has two separate domains in the heart of the Petite Champagne. With a history that can be traced back to 1777, the cognac house produces blends of all ages, and have cognacs in their cellars that date back to the beginning of the 1800s. Using the Folle Blanche, Colombard and Ugni Blanc grapes, Delpech Fougerat, although relatively small in size, is enjoyed by consumers on all continents.
Led by the son of the Vinet-Delpech distillery, Jean-Baptiste, 'Les Brûleries Modernes' is a new collection of liquors to emerge almost 250 years after the family’s origins in the Cognac region.
So why “brûlerie”? The word in French means the “act of burning,” and in fact dates all the way back to the fifteenth century of Cognac production. It was at this time that the distillation process was referred to as “burning” the eaux-de-vie at the heart of Les Brûleries Modernes in traditional Charentais pot stills.
