Description

Refined and Harmonious: the “Gourmand” Gautier Cognac VSOP 

Achieving the "Outstanding" label Gold award at the famous International Wine & Spirits Competition in 2015, the Gautier VSOP is an exquisite blend of Fins Bois, Bons Bois and Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie.

Described as "gourmand" by Gautier themselves, it boasts a beautiful blend of aromas, from warming winter spices to sweet candied fruits, with a delicate woody note of oak to offer an authentic touch to this relatively young Cognac.

Established in 1755, the Maison Gautier are one of the oldest Cognac houses around. They are uncompromising in their approach to Cognac production, putting their heart and soul into every blend.

Located next to the Osme river, the natural humidity of their cellars, which are located in an 18th century water mill, provides the perfect environment for their prize-winning Cognacs to mature, allowing their flavors to refine and intensify over time. Ran by a small team of passionate Cognac connoisseurs, these artisans work tirelessly to create the most masterful blends for your tasting pleasure.

For such a relatively young Cognac, this VSOP really does have a rather complex character, with notes of candied fruits, dried figs, vanilla and warming winter spices. The time spent in Limousin oak casks doesn't go unnoticed during your tasting session, with the woody character being present on both nose and palate, it boasts a strong structure with a wonderfully long finish of subtle spices.

How to Enjoy:

This harmonious blend can be enjoyed neat, over ice or as a refreshing long drink with soda or tonic water.

Why not try this VSOP in the "Gautier Bliss", a signature cocktail created by the Maison.

  • 2 fl oz. of Gautier VSOP
  • 1 fl oz. Triple Sec
  • 1 fl oz. Freshly squeezed lemon juice with a touch of black pepper.
  • 0.5 fl oz. Simply syrup

Shake your ingredients with ice before pouring into a chilled rocks glass, to add a sweet touch, run a lemon wedge around the rim of the glass before dipping in demerara sugar and serve with a lemon zest.

Presentation of the Bottle:

This beautiful bell-shaped bottle is the perfect addition to any home-bar or drinks cabinet, its sleek and sexy design stands out while the copper and bright blue tones of the label and seal pair perfectly with the amber color of the Cognac. The bottle equally comes with a cardboard case for gifting, storage or presentation purposes.

I like it!

It's true the nose is a bit flat.. but that taste is just awesome. I think, for what this is, it's a great cognac. it's only been aged for 4 years, so it can't have the same taste as Henessy XO !

Not my favorite

I thought that the nose was really quite flat.. not a lot of aromas here. Slight hints of honey, very slight. Some people do like that. While the after taste is really nice I am not sure about the overall value..


About Gautier Cognac

Gautier Cognac is amongst the oldest Cognac houses, with a very unique location. Gautier is based in Aigre on the Osme river, and ages in an 18th century water mill. Aigre is also referred to as the "Little Venice" of Charente. The proximity to the water and the resulting humidity and temperature in the cellars gives the cognac a recognizable taste. Maison Gautier unites ancient history with a modern view of the Cognac market. Cognac Gautier caters to both professional Cognac connoisseurs and aficionados as well as younger consumers that like to experiment with Cognac and try out new and trendy cocktails.
