The Distillerie du Peyrat Rare Presige VSOP Cognac is, as with all of the Cognacs from this house, certified as wholly organic. Being a small concern, the house only produces around 160,000 bottles of this particular Cognac per year, each created from both Fins Bois and Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, making for a beautifully round, light taste sensation.
A VSOP quality, the youngest component in this blend is aged for a minimum of 7 years. This is a great Cognac to enjoy in a variety of ways: neat, on the rocks, perhaps with a mixer or as a delicious component in a cocktail. The bottle is attractive as well.
In 2009, Paul Pacult, of The Spirit Journal, awarded this the 4 stars/Highly Recommended status.

Nose: Ripe grapes, plums, leather scented
Palate: Spicy, with complex notes of cinnamon, vanilla beans, and clove. A mellow, light, yet well-rounded Cognac that's both fruity yet subtle.
The organic brand of Distillerie du Peyrat is committed to running its production in a wholly organic manner. Since 1998 the house has been certified as organic by several global organizations, including ECOCERT and the USDA. They produce a small but high quality range of Cognacs that are well appreciated for their finesse, roundness, and delicate aromas.
