Dessert in a Glass: The Gilles Brisson VSOP Grande Champagne
The Gilles Brisson VSOP Cognac is definitely a one step up from its younger version with more mature and complex notes. Like all other Cognacs produced by the Brisson Cognac house, the Gilles Brisson VSOP Cognac is made with nothing else but just Ugni Blanc harvested from the prestigious Grande Champagne region earned the very coveted and quality assuring Grande Champagne Appellation - 1er Cru de Cognac - Classification.
Labeled as a VSOP or Very Superior Old Pale, the Gilles Brisson VSOP Cognac is made from a blend in which young brandy is kept in casks for at least four years before being put under an aging process that lasts up to 6 years before it is being released to the market.
The ‘Premier Cru’ character is very prominent in this fine VSOP Cognac, thanks to the unique geological makeup of its soil. This part of the Cognac region has millions of years of fossilization to thank for the high chalk content of its soil, dating all the way back to the Jurassic period. The combination of a maritime climate, high levels of limestone and chalk, along with its optimum position absorbing as much sunlight as possible before harvesting - makes for cultivation of grapes perfect for creating fine Cognac.
