Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Guillon Painturaud VSOP Cognac is, as are all of the house's offerings, a pure Grande Champagne delight. It's the youngest expression from this artisan house, and is both bold and balanced. In fact, it shows surprising maturity for a mid-aged quality Cognac. The greatness of the Grande Champagne terroir is really showcased in both its aromas and on onth palate.
As is so deloightful when purchasing a Cognac from a small, artisan creator, it offers extraordinary value for money. Enjoy it neat, in the traditional manner as a digestif. Or perhaps on the rocks, or combined with a mixer if you choose. The cocktail lovers out there will find this very much to their taste, as it's friendly on the wallet yet bold enough to bring its own character into the mix. A wonderfully versatile Cognac.
