The Drouet Fine Mélina Cognac
The Drouet Fine Mélina Cognac is named after Patrick Drouet's second daughter and complements her essence with a delightful silky softness. An exceptional VSOP quality blend from Grande Champagne made using eaux-vie vie from the 2010 harvest. As you would expect when the cellar master bestows the name of his child on the bottle, it is a pretty special selection. Perfectly suited to those who prefer a softer Cognac with a subtle essence.
Crafted by a Cognac house impressively authenticated in 1848, the Drouet house knows what it takes to create a truly exceptional Cognac. Having had plenty of time to perfect the art of crafting Cognac’s using traditional, timeless methods, each creation is the embodiment of brilliance. No exception to that, this VSOP displays the essence of this house with soft simplicity. An excellent place to begin your Drouet journey.
Presentation of the bottle
A beautiful balanced display drawing in a soft feminine essence, with historic illustrations and styling. The embodiment of tradition, complemented by a clean, sophisticated style. It’s a harmonious display of a wonderfully soft Cognac. Finished in a presentation tube, which matches the bottle's display with perfect synergy, the importance of this Cognac is immediately evident. An exceptional selection to own.
How to enjoy
As a VSOP, this is a wonderful versatile Cognac to enjoy. Try it neat to savor the subtle softness, or mix it into a longer drink to draw on its silky essence.
